Holocene
0 - 0.0117 Ma



ID: 3375439
Young flood-plain deposits

Age: Anthropocene (0 - 0.0117 Ma)

Description: Gray-brown clay, silt, and fine- to coarse-grained sand; weakly consolidated by clay content. Forms benches 1 to 3 m (3 to 10 ft) above stream-channel (Qs) or modern flood-plain (Qf) deposits. Subject to cut-bank channel erosion in Little Colorado River Valley and local streams in large tributary washes. Overlapped by thin accumulations of young surficial deposits (Qd, Qes, Qps, Qa1). Supports thick growths of salt cedar (Tamarisk) trees, grass, tumble weed, camel thorn bush, and various other high-desert shrubs. Often subjected to overbank flooding by Little Colorado River and local tributary streams. Thickness, 1 to 6 m (3 to 20 ft)

Holocene
0 - 0.0117 Ma



ID: 2717646
Holocene surficial deposits

Age: Anthropocene (0 - 0.0117 Ma)

Description: Unconsolidated deposits associated with modern fluvial systems. This unit consists primarily of fine-grained, well-sorted sediment on alluvial plains, but also includes gravelly channel, terrace, and alluvial fan deposits on middle and upper piedmonts. (0-10 ka)
