Geology of the Gallatin Range and Yellowstone Valley, north of Yellowstone National Park


Geology of the Gallatin Range and Yellowstone Valley, north of Yellowstone National Park



Pages 41-43 1965



Most of the Beartooth Range is composed of Precambrian rock, but along the west edge Paleozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary rocks and Tertiary volcanics also are present. In the similar Gallatin Range the volcanic pile attains a thickness of 3,000 to 4,000 feet, dipping east and southeast 5 to 10 degrees . Individual flows may be up to 200 feet thick, and are of two lithologic types: basic andesite and andesitic, and locally acidic breccias. Within the glaciated Yellowstone Valley are exposures of olivine-bearing basalt, of Pliocene-Pleistocene age.
