  • Production of voluminous igneous arc rocks, high-pressure/low-temperature (HP/LT) metamafic rocks, westward relative migration of the Klamath Mountains province, and U–Pb ages of deposition, sediment sources, and spatial locations of Jurassic and younger, detrital zircon-bearing clastic rocks constrain geologic development of the northern California continental edge as follows: (1) At ~175 Ma, transpressive plate underflow began to generate an Andean-type Klamath-Sierran arc along the margin… CONTINUE READING
