Abstract

The AA. review the stratigraphy of the loess and buried soils and then develop three main themes : multiple correlations of tephra layers in late Quaternary loess, some from known and dated eruptions of cascade volcanoes; correlations of tephra layers that date late Quaternary and older giant floods in the Channeled Scabland allowing correlation of episode of floods among sites; and characterization of undated tephra layers in middle and early Quaternary loess sections important to the total record of the Palouse and Channeled Scabland
