This information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This data will improve over time as more accurate maps and data sets are added.

Holocene - Pliocene0 - 5.333 MaQuaternary alluvium and marine deposits

Major:: {alluvium},Minor:: {terrace},Incidental:: {lake or marine deposit (non-glacial)}

Alluvium, lake, playa, and terrace deposits; unconsolidated and semi-consolidated. Mostly nonmarine, but includes marine deposits near the coast.

Quaternary0 - 2.588 MaQuaternary sedimentary

Sedimentary

Cretaceous66 - 145 MaCretaceous plutonic rocks

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.
