Journal of the Geological Society (1979) 136 (6): 693-704.
...W. B. Jones; S. J. Lippard Abstract The area of the triple-rift junction in W Kenya, between the E-W Kavirondo Rift, the N-S Northern Kenya Rift and the NW-SE Central Kenya Rift, has been the site of continuous volcanic and tectonic activity since the Middle Miocene. From about 20 to 7 Ma the area...

.... In western Kenya the volcanoes are associated with the transverse Kavirondo rift. The Kisingiri volcano, to the west, has been eroded to reveal an older complex of intrusive ijolite, uncompahgrite, carbonatite and fenite, pierced by the later pyroclastic vent of Rangwa. This nephelinitic volcano is truncated...

... of earthquakes showed that activity was not restricted to a central zone in the rift but was scattered throughout it. Depths of focus were shallow—less than 15 km. The most active region was in the Kavirondo rift near the site of a series of earthquakes in March 1968; microearthquakes were concentrated in a very...

Markl Abstract The Tinderet volcano (19.9 to 5.5 Ma), located within the Kavirondo rift in Kenya, contains blocks of carbonatite lavas with calcite, minor apatite, fluorite, spinel-group minerals, accessory perovskite and ‘plumbopyrochlore’; nyerereite...

... Abstract High topography in the realm of the rifted East African Plateau is commonly explained by two different mechanisms: (1) rift-flank uplift resulting from mechanical and/or isostatic relaxation and (2) lithospheric uplift due to the impingement of a mantle plume. High topography in East...

... developed and abundant intracontinental rifts and much intra-plate volcanism occurred. Those episodes can be attributed to shallow convection resulting from plate pinning, i.e., arrested continental motion, induced by the successive eruption of the Karroo and Afar plumes. Shallow convection during...
