... of the Shungura Formation lies in the Kalam region, 25 km SSW of the Shungura Formation type area, and 15 km west of the Omo River. Indeed, Member K of the Shungura Formation has its type section at Errum ( de Heinzelin & Haersaerts 1983 ), where Tuff K forms a cuesta. Tuff K is divided into Tuff K-alpha...
