SAMPLE INFO : Preece_1999_Gold_Hill_Loess_PA_average
Sample ID:Preece_1999_Gold_Hill_Loess_PA_average
Station ID:Gold Hill Loess Regional Tephra
Latitude:64.9
Longitude:-147.89997
Datum:NAD83
Sample Type 1:Tephra Fall
Text Description:
Semi-lithified condition; cemented aggregates of very small glass shards and phenocyrsts. Type I beds have a cream, pink, or gray color; they contain less than 20% phenocrysts and have bubblewall shards, pumice with large vesicles, glass spheres, and, typically, small amounts of dark brown glass shards. Major minerals are feldspar, orthopyroxene, and clinopyroxene with minor or trace amounts of green and red amphibole, titanomagnetite, ilmenite, apatite, zircon, and biotite. The composition reported here is the average of two samples: UA355 and UT497

Gold Hill Loess Regional Tephra64.9-147.89997Preece, S. J. Tephra occuring primarily in the Gold Hill Loess, Gold Hill area of Fairbanks, Alaska. Tephras identified in 13 stratigraphic sections in the area; geochemical data of samples reported here are averages calculated from analyses of multiple tephra correlated across different stratigraphic locations in the area. Individual sample IDs are noted in the sample descriptions. Note that tephra units only located in one stratigraphic section are not included here and are listed by individual sample ID (see Preece et al. 1999 footnotes of tables 1 and 2).Semi-lithified condition; cemented aggregates of very small glass shards and phenocyrsts.
