Secular variations in magmatism during a continental arc to post-arc transition: Plio-Pleistocene volcanism in the Lake Tahoe/Truckee area, Northern Sierra Nevada, California

Abstract:

In the Lake Tahoe-Truckee River area of northeastern California, a suite of latest Pliocene to Pleistocene volcanic rocks, termed the Tahoe-Truckee volcanic field (TTVF), overlies Miocene to Pliocene volcanic rocks of the Ancestral Cascades arc. The lavas post-date the passage of the south edge of the subducting Juan de Fuca plate, and represent a secular transition from continental arc to post-arc volcanism associated with a slab window. Compared to the older arc volcanic rocks, TTVF lavas a...
