... Olorgesailie, but fault traces are not exposed. Three members are recognized in the Oltulelei Formation, from base to top: Olkesiteti, Oltepesi, and Tinga Members ( Table 2 ; Fig. 4 ; see detailed descriptions in supplementary data DR3). We also here define the Oltulelei Tuffs, which are distinctive...

distances between localities are shown below the panel. Olkesiteti Member is indicated by shades of gray plus the red basal unit in Locality G, Oltepesi Member is indicated by shades of brown, and Tinga Member is indicated by light orange. The Oltulelei Tuffs in the Olkesiteti Member are light gray. Heavy

Paleochannel orientations and paleocurrent indicators, such as imbrication, show that the fluvial sediments were deposited from both major streams and local channel systems. The 14 members...
