The geometry, volcanic-sedimentary stratigraphic architecture, and distribution of clastic sedimentary facies reflect a complex tectonic setting and fluctuations in climatic conditions during the past 2.5 m.y. in the Big Lost Trough on the eastern Snake River Plain. Interaction of the migrating Yellowstone hotspot and developing Basin and Range structures controlled the spatial distribution of volcanic rift zones that define the margins of the Big Lost Trough, an arid, underfilled basin.
