A sequence of early to middle Miocene, continental and marine beds of conglom- erate, sandstone, and siltstone, exposed in the southwest- ernmost portion of Washington, is tentatively correlated with the Astoria Formation of Oregon on the basis of their contained fauna, their stratigraphic position, and their lithologic characteristics (RAU; SNAVELEYet al.

MIOCENE MARINE MOLLUSKS FROM THE ASTORIA FORMATION IN OREGON By ELLEN JAMES MOORE ABSTRACT The marine Astoria formation of Miocene age occurs in western Oregon.

Fossiliferous exposures are limited almost entirely to the sea cliffs along the Pacific Ocean in Tillamook and Lincoln by: AbstractA new occurrence of fossil butternut is recognized based on a. Studies, beginning in southwest Washington in the late s and continuing into the s, resulted in the initial correlation of Washington's Tertiary sequence with Cali­ fornia foraminiferal stages and the establishment of provincial zones.

This framework was later extended to the early and middle Tertiary rocks of northwest Washington. Stratigraphy, Age, and Tectonic Setting of the Miocene-Pliocene Lacustrine Sediments of the Western Snake River Plain, Oregon and Idaho Glenns Ferry, Idaho, along the southwest edge of the plain suggests that these lakes occupied approxi- mately the same basin.

Palmer. Willapa basin is a middle Eocene to Holocene depocenter in southwestern Washington and on the adjacent continental shelf.

Surface geology, biostratigraphy, and seismic and well data have been used to develop a stratigraphic and structural interpretation of the basin. The Miocene (/ ˈ m aɪ. ə ˌ s iː n, ˈ m aɪ. oʊ-/ MY-ə-seen, MY-oh-) is the first geological epoch of the Neogene Period and extends from about (Ma).

The Miocene was named by Charles Lyell; its name comes from the Greek words μείων (meiōn, "less") and καινός (kainos, "new") and means "less recent" because it has 18% fewer modern sea invertebrates than the Pliocene.

High-resolution geophysical data recorded on the continental shelf west of Tampa Bay, Florida show three stratigraphic units: Holocene, Plio-Pleistocene, and Miocene.

Within the Miocene unit is an expansive drainage system extending about 80 kilometers offshore. In most areas, a system such as this. The Nye-Astoria contact is best exposed at Jumpoff Joe (fig. 2), miles north of Stop 1. Marine Pleistocene terrace deposits overlie both Miocene units at this stop.

To the north along the beach, mas-sive to well-bedded fossiliferous sandstone of the Astoria Formation contains interbedded siltstone, basaltic sandstone, and water-laid. The first records at Florissant of the lipotyphlans Centetodon and Domnina, the lagomorph Megalagus, and the rodents Pelycomys, Eutypomys, Ischyromys, and Adjidaumo were discovered in and were described by Worley-Georg and Eberle ().We build upon that research by providing systematic description of several more members of the Florissant mammalian fauna.

William 'Strata' Smith (23 March – 28 August ) was an English geologist and surveyor who generated the first geological map of one thinks of how little had been published on formalized sedimentary stratigraphy and how little was known of the relationship of fossils to depositional setting and time, this was a miraculous creation of intuitive genius.
