Pierce Kenneth, U.S. Geological Survey


The authors of this US Geological Survey report trace the Yellowstone hotspot track back to an apparent inception centered near the Oregon-Nevada border, and discuss implications of their plume-head model for regional geology, geochemistry, tectonics, and paleoaltitude/paleoclimate. This report is a pdf file.
