Chadra 1Looking NW across the Yammouneh Fault. The viewpoint is on elevated Cretaceous limestones, the offset eastern edge of the Mount Lebanon fold. We overlook lavas of the Homs basalt which forms an incised lower plateau that leads off into the distance. The Yammouneh Fault lies in Wadi Chadra, apparently offsetting the lavas. However, the lavas occupy lower ground. The same map pattern is generated if the Mount Lebanon uplift was offset AND THEN lavas erupted around the edges. Evidence in favour of this second interpretation comes from the landscape. Minor streams in Wadi Chadra are not offset, despite cutting through the entire fault zone. There are no post-lava landscape features that appear offset.
