Summary

The northern half of the Lake Walcott 30 x 60 minute quadrangle shows the geology of the southern part of the Craters of the Moon lava field, the complex geologic features of the Holocene Kings Bowl and Wapi lava fields, and the southern part of the Great Rift volcanic rift zone. The long extent and distribution of skylights in lava-tube systems of the Horse Butte and Wapi Park lava fields are depicted on this map. 40Ar/39Ar and K/Ar age determinations give detail to the Holocene, late Pleistocene, and late middle Pleistocene volcanic for lava fields in this quadrangle. Most of the younger basalt eruptions (<150 ka) have occurred along the Great Rift volcanic rift zone, but two of the younger lava fields are located in the western [...]

Purpose

This map provides geologic, geochronologic, and paleomagnetic data for Holocene lava fields along the southern part of the Great Rift and for late Pleistocene and late middle Pleistocene lava fields in the central and western parts of the quadrangle. These data will contribute to wise management and preservation of the Craters of the Moon National Monument and for broad-scale understanding of the basaltic-volcanic evolution of the eastern Snake River Plain.
