La Virgen tephra is the product of the youngest and most voluminous explosive eruption of Las Tres Vírgenes volcano (Baja California). Combined UeTh and (UeTh)/He zircon dating allows accurate correction for uranium-series disequilibrium, and yields an eruption age for La Virgen tephra of 30:7þ1:8 1:4 ka (2s). No difference in eruption ages was found between samples from proximal and distal La Virgen tephra. A previously undated tephra south of Las Tres Vírgenes volcano yielded UeTh and (UeTh… CONTINUE READING
