Loess deposits in southeastern Idaho are subdivided into stratigraphic units on the basis of stratigraphic position, buried soils, and relations to other stratigraphic units. The upper unit, loess unit A, covers most of the landscape where slopes are gentle and underlying units are older than about 15,000 years. The next older unit, loess unit B, is present at stable sites where loess unit A is thick and where the underlying substratum is older than about 150,000 years. Loess units A and B seem… Expand

Distribution and Character of Loess and Loess Soils in Southeastern Idaho
The depth of loess deposits over most of the area of south-central and southeastern Idaho is between 50 to 100 centimeters thick. The thickest loess deposits are south and east of the Snake RiverExpand
Quaternary Stratigraphy and Chronology In the American Falls Area , Southeastern Idaho
New information about the stratigraphy, paleoecology, and geochronology of the American Falls area in southeastern Idaho adds to and modifies previously published interpretations of the lateExpand
Pleistocene Episodes of Alluvial-Gravel Deposition , Southeastern Idaho
In southeastern Idaho, extensive gravel deposits occur on alluvial fans and along major streams. Gravel deposits of late Pleistocene age occur in each drainage; older gravel deposits form terraces orExpand

A loess–paleosol record of climate and glacial history over the past two glacial–interglacial cycles (~ 150 ka), southern Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Abstract Loess accumulated on a Bull Lake outwash terrace of Marine Oxygen Isotope Stage 6 (MIS 6) age in southern Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The 9 m section displays eight intervals of loess depositionExpand
Glacial loess in the conterminous USA

Alluvial fan sediments and surface ages resulting from differing climatic and tectonic conditions in Star Valley, Wyoming, USA
Abstract Alluvial fans occur in all climatic and tectonic environments. However, most descriptions of fan features and sediments have focused on arid and semiarid regions. This paper describes theExpand
