Quaternary
0 - 2.588 Ma



ID: 1462402
Quaternary surficial deposits; Pluvial lake valley deposits

Age: Pleistocene (0 - 2.588 Ma)

Description: Sedimentary deposits; sedimentary rocks; mixed grained sediments; mixed lithologies

Lithology: Major:: {ashy diatomite}; Major:: {eolian sedimentary rocks}; Major:: {lacustrine sedimentary rocks} Minor:: {tuff}; Minor:: {tufa}; Minor:: {gravel}; Minor:: {hot spring sinter}

Pleistocene
0.0117 - 2.588 Ma



ID: 2918167
Lacustrine and fluvial sedimentary rocks

Age: Pleistocene (0.0117 - 2.588 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Willamette Silt; Gresham Formation; Estacada Formation

Description: Unconsolidated to semiconsolidated lacustrine clay, silt, sand, and gravel; in places includes mudflow and fluvial deposits and discontinuous layers of peat. Includes older alluvium and related deposits of Piper (1942), Willamette Silt (Allison, 1953; Wells and Peck, 1961), alluvial silt, sand, and gravel that form terrace deposits of Wells and others (1983), and Gresham and Estacada Formations of Trimble (1963). Includes deltaic gravel and sand and gravel bars, in pluvial lake basins in southeastern part of map area. In Rome Basin, includes discontinuous layers of poorly consolidated conglomerate characterized by well-rounded, commonly polished pebbles of chert and pebbles and cobbles of quartzite. In places contains mollusks or vertebrate fossils indicating Pleistocene age; mostly deposits of late Pleistocene age, but locally includes some deposits of early Holocene age. Includes Touchet Beds of Flint (1938), deposits of valley terraces of Newcomb (1965), and, in southeast Oregon, basin-filling deposits that incorporate Mazama ash deposits (Qma, Qmp) in the youngest layers
