SAMPLE INFO : UT819
Sample ID:UT819
Station ID:Gold_Hill_I
Latitude:64.8
Longitude:-147.9
Datum:NAD83
Sample Type 1:Tephra Fall
Text Description:
Crops out about 4 m above the HP tephra and is a thin, microfaulted bed with an average thickness of 1 cm and a maximum thickness of 2 cm. Continuous bed that is interbedded with massive, well-consolidated, mottled (10YR6/1 and 2.5Y7/1) grey silt with numerous charcoal flecks. Sharp and irregular lower contact; diffuse and streaky upper contact. Streaks in upper contact appear directional. Dark brown (organic/manganese?) blebs within the tephra and surrounding loess (not volcanic in origin). Black charcoal flecks occur within the tephra. Grey streaks near the base, usually at a high angle, that may be loess.
