Stephanodiscus rhombus, a New Diatom Species from Pliocene,

The Pliocene diatomaceous deposit is one of a series including Chiloquin, Oregon and Pit River, California along the east flank of the Cascade Range. The Chil-oquin and Pit River deposits are discussed as part of the Yonna Formation by Newcomb (1958) and Mac Donald (1966). Additional specimens of S. rhombus have been discovered in material from Terrebone, Or-egon.

Geology of the Belridge Diatomite, Northern South

The coincidence of the opal-A/opal-CT transition with the top of the lower diatomite suggests that diagenesis preceded structural deformation. Using average compacted sediment deposition rates, the estimated time to deposit the Belridge diatomite was 1,643,400 years. Comparison of the lower Belridge diatomite sections at the north and south,Antarctic and Southern Ocean influences on Late Pliocene,,Pliocene (16, 17), widespread deglaciation of the EAIS at this time (18) is unsupported by ice sheet models (19, 20), benthic δ18O records (21) and glacial deposits at high elevation in the TAM (22).
