The Hoh rock assemblage of the western Olympic Peninsula, Washington, was Deposited in Eocene to Miocene time, and accreted, deformed, uplifted, and eroded by the late Miocene. Northeast-dipping fault zones within the Hoh are characterized by intensely deformed mud matrix melange, and they range from ∼200 m to >1,000 m thick; kinematic indicators within the matrix indicate thrusting to the west-southwest. Both hanging-wall and footwall sections are strongly folded and faulted. Wall-rock… CONTINUE READING
