The middle to upper Eocene Tillamook Volcanics form the basement in the Rock Creek - Rocky Point area. These tholeiitic to alkalic basalts, basaltic andesites, and andesites were erupted as shield volcanoes seaward of the strandline ontop of an older deep-marine mudstone unit (Yamhill Formation) and an accreted portion of...
The area studied in detail, known as the Antone District,
is located in the southeast corner of Wheeler County, Oregon, ,
between longitude 119 37. and 119°54 east, and latitude 44°23
and 44°3O' north.
Surface elevations range from 3050 feet above sea level in
the northeast corner of the district,...
The Pennsylvanian rocks in south-central Idaho and adjacent areas consist of three main facies: a platform facies, a shelf facies, and a marginal basin facies. The platform facies is represented by the Amsden, Quadrant, and Tensleep Formations, in southwestern Montana and western Wyoming, and contain Middle and probably Lower Pennsylvanian...
The northern Los Angeles basin is influenced by two structural styles: the west-trending compressional Transverse Ranges to the north, and the strike-slip Peninsular Ranges to the south. The interaction of these two structural styles has resulted in a complex fold fault belt at the northern margin of the Los Angeles...
The Ataspaca prospect is in the Cordillera Occidental, 45 km northwest of Tacna, Peru. Epizonal intrusions satellitic to the Caplina- Ataspaca pluton were emplaced 41 m.y. ago into limestones of the Lower Jurassic Pelado Formation along the northeast-trending Chucchuco fault system. Depths of emplacement ranged from 4.5 to 6.0 km....
During the Late Mississippian-Early Pennsylvanian (latest
Chesterian-early Morrowan), a thick sequence of shallow -water
carbonate-clastic sediments, equivalent to the "Amsden" and lower
Quadrant Formations, was deposited in the Snowcrest trough on the
western margin of the northern Rocky Mountain Cordilleran platform
in southwestern Montana. Today this late Chesterian sequence is...
The Devonian Simonson and Guilmette Formations provide examples of
Cordilleran miogeosynclinal inner and middle shelf carbonate deposition
that act in response to changes in eustasy, sedimentation, and
tectonics. The Simonson Dolomite consists of four members that
collectively record three distinct transgressive-regressive cycles.
The Coarse Crystalline dolomudstone lithofacies represents restricted
The Nanga Parbat-Haramosh massif (NPHM) is a north-south trending
structural and topographic high, which interrupts the east-west trend
of the Himalaya in northern Pakistan. Previously, the massif was
thought to be bounded by the Main Mantle thrust (MMT), a north-dipping
thrust along which the Kohistan-Ladakh arc was thrust south over...
