Geologic units containing talus
An outward sloping and accumulated heap or mass of rock fragments of any size or shape (usually coarse and angular) derived from and lying at the base of a cliff or very steep, rocky slope, and formed chiefly by gravitational falling, rolling, or sliding.
- Landslide deposits (Phanerozoic | Cenozoic | Quaternary)
- Locally includes talus, rock-glacier, and thick colluvial deposits
- Fanglomerate (Holocene? and Pleistocene) (Pleistocene to Holocene)
- Poorly sorted and poorly stratified alluvial fan debris, slope wash, colluvium, and talus; composed mostly of silt and fragments of basalt, basaltic andesite, and andesite. In places includes small areas of pediment gravels and colluvium
