About The Product

Published through the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Field journey Guidebooks Series.

This guidebook is for a six-day day trip among Issaquah, Washington (east of Seattle), and Portland, Oregon, that emphasizes the Tertiary and Quaternary volcanic geology of the western Columbia Plateau and the Cascade variety of southern Washington and northern Oregon (Figures 1 and 2). The guidebook summarizes the geology of chosen components alongside the path and offers a short advent to the overall volcanic heritage of the Columbia River Basalt staff and the southern Washington Cascades. an in depth yet no longer exhaustive bibliography accompanies the guidebook. the line logs are designed to be self-guiding; as such, they're extra entire than helpful for guided bus tours.

9 STOP 16. Margin of Westfall Rocks microdiorite unit, with dark hornfelsed Wildcat Creek lapilli tuff hanging on margin (Figure 30). This intrusion, as well as Goose Egg Mountain and two other dikelike bodies of similar lithology, Kloochman Rock and Chimney Peaks, are of mid-Tertiary age but have not been dated. Whether they are feeders for andesite in the Fifes Peak Formation is problematic. T h e Westfall Rocks and Goose Egg intrusions are probably connected at depth but have joint patterns that suggest they are separate bodies at the present level of exposure.
