Deep structural levels of the Brooks Range thrust belt, and a unique sequence of lower Paleozoic rocks (informally named the Apoon assemblage) are exposed in a structural high near Mount Doonerak. Previous workers interpreted ...
Seismic-stratigraphic analysis of shelf-margin delta/slope fan and basin floor fan on high-latitude and middle-latitude margins (Ross Sea, Weddell Sea and Alabama/West Florida shelf): Paleoclimatic and eustatic implications
This dissertation consists of three chapters describing seismic stratigraphic studies in three very different continental margin settings. The first chapter discusses the northwestern Ross Sea, the second discusses the ...
FACIES OF LATE PLEISTOCENE GLACIAL MARINE SEDIMENTS ON WHIDBEY ISLAND, WASHINGTON
Detailed mapping of over 10 kms of cliff exposure on Whidbey Island, Washington has resulted in the recognition of six major lithofacies within "Everson" age glacial-marine deposits (late-Pleistocene). These lithofacies ...
THE PETROLOGY AND GEOCHEMISTRY OF HIGH CASCADE VOLCANICS IN SOUTHERN WASHINGTON: MOUNT ST. HELENS VOLCANO AND THE INDIAN HEAVEN BASALT FIELD (TRACE ELEMENT, ISOTOPES, MINERALOGY)
Mount St. Helens volcano (Washington, USA) has been characterized by four eruptive periods during the last 2200 years. Eruptive products include a wide spectrum of rock types including basaltic to andesitic lavas, andesitic ...
Cenozoic inversion structures in a back-arc setting, Western Flores Sea, Indonesia
A geophysical and geological study utilizing high quality seismic and well log data was undertaken of a marginal basin in the Western Flores Sea, Indonesia, to document the evolution of Paleogene extensional basins and ...
