GSA Special Paper 446.

Summarizing new geological research in the Horn of Africa—a region well known for the record of human evolution—this volume focuses on four research projects that surround the long-studied Hadar Research Area. These research projects—Dikika, Gona, Hadar, and Ledi-Geraru—cover the geology of most of the Lower Awash Valley. The authors’ new research and inter-project collaborative efforts help to understand the chronology and context of some of our earliest ancestors.
