    The states of Oregon and Washington border the Pacific Ocean within an area of diverse topography, climate, and vegetation with altitudes ranging from sea level to more than 8, ft. The Mesozoic and Paleozoic rocks are quasi-eugeosynclinal but badly indurated and/or metamorphosed, implying that. Tertiary igneous sequences occur in the elevated continental plates on both sides of the Rockies. The laccolithic complexes of the Colorado Plateau and the diorite-syenite-shonkinite (or lamprophyre) complexes found east of the Rockies resemble the San Juan sequence but are more alkalic.

    Five distinct lithologic units compose the Tertiary rocks in the Tillamook Head - Necanicum Junction area of the northern Oregon Coast Range. They are: the late Eocene to early Miocene Oswald West mudstones, the middle Miocene Angora Peak sandstone and Silver Point mudstone members of the Astoria Formation, and the middle Miocene intrusive and.

BRICKS & MORTAR PHASE - 7. Coast Range Volcanoes: Oregon's first hot spot (Lighter shading indicates original extent.) A few million years after the Siletz Terrane see Unit 4 joined the continent and began to be buried by sand and mud, the newly formed northwest corner of Oregon, moving with the North American continent, drifted west across a hot spot, triggering huge eruptions of lava that.

Intrusive features like stocks, laccoliths, sills, and dikes are formed. If the conduits are emptied after an eruption, they can collapse in the formation of a caldera, or remain as lava tubes and caves. The mass of cooling magma is called a pluton, and the rock around is known as country rock.

Slow cooling over thousands to millions of years. The continental shelf and slope that borders Oregon and Washington is underlain by more than 5 km of Eocene and younger sedimentary and volcanic rocks. This sequence has been deformed in response to episodic periods of underthrusting and transform faulting between Pacific and continental lithosphere.
