Holocene
0 - 0.0117 Ma



ID: 3203773
Stream-channel deposits

Age: Anthropocene (0 - 0.0117 Ma)

Description: White to light-red interbedded silt, sand, gravel, and pebbles; unconsolidated and poorly sorted. Pebbles and some cobbles are mostly sandstone above the stratigraphic position of the Shinarump Member of the Chinle Formation; below the Chinle, clasts are dominated by black, well-rounded pebbles of quartzite or chert derived from the Shinarump Member of the Chinle Formation. Intertongue with or inset against young alluvial fan (Qay), young terrace-gravel (Qgy), and upper part of valley alluvial (Qv) deposits, overlaps flood-plain (Qf) and ponded sediment (Qps) deposits. Stream channels subject to intermittent high-energy flash floods that produce local sediment accumulation on flood-plain (Qf), young terrace-gravel (Qgy), and young alluvial fan (Qay) deposits. Little or no vegetation in stream channels except for occasional tamarisk trees, willow trees, and grass. About 1 to 4 m (3 to 12 ft) thick

Permian
251.902 - 298.9 Ma



ID: 3187666
Paleozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Phanerozoic (251.902 - 298.9 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks

Kungurian - Moscovian
272.95 - 315.2 Ma



ID: 3005545
Permian to Pennsylvanian sedimentary rocks

Age: Paleozoic (272.95 - 315.2 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Hermit Formation; Supai Group; Schnebly Hill Formation; Naco Group

Description: Interbedded sandstone, shale, and limestone usually characterized by ledgy outcrops. Orange to reddish sandstone forms cliffs near Sedona. This unit includes Supai Group and Hermit Shale in northern Arizona and Naco Group in southern Arizona. It was deposited in coastal-plain to shallow-marine settings during time of variable and changing sea level. Rocks of this map unit in southern Arizona may be in part equivalent to Permian rocks of map unit P in central and northern Arizona. (280-310 Ma)
