Miocene to Holocene landscape evolution of the western Snake River Plain region, Idaho: Using the SHRIMP detrital zircon provenance record to track eastward migration of the Yellowstone hotspot

Beranek, Luke P.; Link, Paul K.; Fanning, Christopher


We report new U-Pb detrital zircon sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe (SHRIMP) age data (702 grains) from 13 samples collected from Miocene to Holocene sedimentary deposits in the western Snake River Plain region. These samples effectively show that modern stream sediments of the Snake River system reliably and repeatedly record the detrital zircon age populations that are present as sources in their drainage basins across the Cordilleran thrust belt and Basin and Range Province. We use...[Show more]
