chadra 2

Looking north out along the Wadi Chadra. The rubbly white rocks in the foreground are shattered limestones - part of the fault rock suite of the Yammouneh Fault. They ae derived from the Cretaceous limestones seen intact in the road section to the right (east of the fault). The basalts in contrast are not deformed. Wadi Chadra has been eroded out along the weak rocks of the fault zone.
