Geologic units containing glaciolacustrine
Deposits and landforms composed of suspended material brought by meltwater streams flowing into lakes bordering the glacier, such as deltas, kame deltas, and varved sediments.
This category is also used for glaciolacustrine.
- Clay, silt, and minor sand; Late Pleistocene distal glacial-flood deposits; western Snake River Plain (Late Pleistocene)
- Pleistocene waterlaid detritus; may be distal deposits of glacial floods and outwash.
- Clay, silt, sand, and gravel; Late Pleistocene glacial-lake sediments; Basin and Range province (Late Pleistocene)
- Pleistocene glacial-lake, ponded-water, and shoreline sediments.
- Glacial lake deposits (Phanerozoic | Cenozoic | Quaternary)
- Glacial lake deposits: mainly silt; believed to have been deposited in lakes formed behind temporary dams of ice or morainal deposits
- Glaciolacustrine deposits (Pleistocene)
- Fine-grained sand and silt, well-stratified, with some gravel, clay, and diatomaceous earth. Contains clastic dikes in Walla Walla area.
- Quaternary nonmarine deposits (Pleistocene)
- Periglacial eolian deposits. Buff to light-brown, massive, homogenous, unconsolidated loessial silt; some water-laid material locally. Probably early Pleistocene.
