Regional Geology

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.

Jurassic - Cambrian145 - 541 MaCambrian-Jurassic sedimentary

Sedimentary

Jurassic145 - 201.3 MaJurassic intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.
