|Holocene0 - 0.0117 Ma||alluvium 38485|
regolith; synthesis of multiple published descriptions
|Silurian-Devonian358.9 - 443.8 Ma||Silurian-Devonian plutonic rocks|
Deep-seated to high-level intrusions are included. Many charnockites, anorthosites, and large ophiolites, classified as plutons, are distinguished in the database using the SIGNIF item. Ophiolites were classified as plutons, even where remnants may be extrusive and/or sedimentary.
|Early Devonian - Ludlow393.3 - 427.4 Ma||Silurian to Devonian sedimentary rocks |
Predominantly sedimentary rocks; includes sedimentary rocks of low metamorphic grade and diapiric breccias
