AFRICA'S NEW OCEAN

A Continent Splits Apart

By Axel Bojanowski

Normally new rivers, seas and mountains are born in slow motion. The Afar Triangle near the Horn of
Africa is another story. A new ocean is forming there with staggering speed -- at least by geological
standards. Africa will eventually lose its horn.

Geologist Dereje Ayalew and his colleagues from Addis Ababa University were amazed -- and frightened.
They had only just stepped out of their helicopter onto the desert plains of central Ethiopia when the
ground began to shake under their feet. The pilot shouted for the scientists to get back to the
helicopter. And then it happened: the Earth split open. Crevices began racing toward the researchers
like a zipper opening up. After a few seconds, the ground stopped moving, and after they had
recovered from their shock, Ayalew and his colleagues realized they had just witnessed history. For the
first time ever, human beings were able to witness the first stages in the birth of an ocean. Normally
changes to our geological environment take place almost imperceptibly. A life time is too short to see
rivers changing course, mountains rising skywards or valleys opening up. In north-eastern Africa's Afar
Triangle, though, recent months have seen hundreds of crevices splitting the desert floor and the
ground has slumped by as much as 100 meters (328 feet). At the same time, scientists have observed
magma rising from deep below as it begins to form what will eventually become a basalt ocean floor.
Geologically speaking, it won't be long until the Red Sea floods the region. The ocean that will then be
born will split Africa apart.

The Afar Triangle, which cuts across Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti, is the largest construction site on the
planet. Three tectonic plates meet there with the African and Arabian plates drifting apart along two
separate fault lines by one centimeter a year. A team of scientists working with Christophe Vigny of the
Paris Laboratory of Geology reported on the phenomenon in a 2006 issue of the Journal of Geophysical
Research. While the two plates move apart, the ground sinks to make room for the Red Sea and the
Gulf of Aden.

Bubbling magma and the smell of sulphur

A third crevice cuts south, splitting not far from Lake Victoria. One branch of the rift runs to the east,
the other to the west of the lake. The two branches of this third crevice are moving apart by about
one millimeter a year. Karte Afrika Afar-Senke english version Zoom SPIEGEL ONLINE Karte Afrika
Afar-Senke english version

The dramatic event that Ayalew and his colleagues witnessed in the Afar Desert on Sept. 26, 2005 was
the first visual proof of this process -- and it was followed by a week-long series of earthquakes. During
the months that followed, hundreds of further crevices opened up in the ground, spreading across an
area of 345 square miles. "The earth has not stopped moving since," geophysicist Tim Wright of the
University of Oxford says. The ground is still splitting open and sinking, he says; small earthquakes are
constantly shaking the region.

Scientists have made repeated trips to the area since the drama of last September. Locals have
reported a number of new cracks opening in the ground, says geologist Cynthia Ebinger from the
University of London, and during each visit, new crevices are discovered. Fumes as hot as 400 degrees
Celsius (752 degrees Fahrenheit) shoot up from some of them; the sound of bubbling magma and the
smell of sulphur rise from others. The larger crevices are dozens of meters deep and several hundred
meters long. Traces of recent volcanic eruptions are also visible.

In a number of places, cracks have opened up beneath the thin layer of volcanic ash that covers the
region. As there is no ash in the fissures, it's clear that they opened up after the volcanic eruptions,
most of which took place at the end of September or in October, 2005. A number of locals who fled
the eruptions have reported that a black cloud of ash -- spewed out of the Dabbahu volcano --
darkened the sky for three days.

A new ocean floor on the Earth's surface

Basalt magma has risen into some of the crevices. For the moment, Ayalew explains, the lava seems
not to be rising further. A number of recent eruptions, though, have left layers of new basalt lava on
the Earth's surface. And it's the exact same kind of lava that spews out of volcanic ridges deep under
the ocean -- a process which slowly pushes older lava sediments away on either side. The process has
only just begun in the Afar Triangle -- and scientists for the first time can witness the birth of a new
ocean floor. The source of the African magma looks to be a gigantic stream of molten rock rising from
beneath the Earth's crust and slicing through the African continental plate like a blow torch. It's a
process that began thirty million years ago when lava broke through the continent for the first time,
separating the Arabian Peninsula from Africa and creating the Red Sea.

Now, it's the Afar Triangle's turn and it's sinking rapidly. Large areas are already more than 100 meters
(328 feet) below sea level. For now, the highlands surrounding the Denakil Depression prevent the Red
Sea from flooding these areas, but erosion and tectonic plate movement are continually reducing the
height of this natural barrier. The Denakil Depression, which lies to the east of Afar, is already prey to
regular floods -- each flood leaving behind a crust of salt.

Africa to lose its horn

The chain of volcanoes that runs along the roughly 6,000 kilometer (3,730 mile) long East African Rift
System offers further testimony to the breaking apart of the continent. In some areas around the outer
edges of the Rift System, the Earth's crust has already cracked open, making room for the magma
below. From the Red Sea to Mozambique in the south, dozens of volcanoes have formed, the best
known being Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Nyiragongo.

These fiery mountains too will one day sink into the sea. Geophysicists have calculated that in 10
million years the East African Rift System will be as large as the Red Sea. When that happens, Africa
will lose its horn.
