Snake River Plain - Yellowstone Volcanic Province
K.L. Ruebelmann 1989 American Geophysical Union Field Trip Guidebook T305

This is a fieldtrip guidebook to the Snake River Plain-Yellowstone volcanic province. This field trip was conceived as a way to introduce one of the major volcano-tectonic features of the North American continent to visiting scientists from abroad. Its objectives are to allow the participants to observe the geologic relationships relevant to the formation of the Snake River Plain and to discuss various interpretations of its genesis.
