    Field-trip guide to the vents, dikes, stratigraphy and structure of the Columbia River Basalt Group, eastern Oregon and southeastern Washington Chapter Full-text available. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY PRELIMINARY RECONNAISSANCE GEOLOGIC MAPS OF THE COLUMBIA RIVER BASALT GROUP IN PARTS OF EASTERN WASHINGTON AND NORTHERN IDAHO By D.A. Swanson, R.D. Bentley, G.R. Byerly, J.N.

    The geologic history of the modern Columbia River Gorge through the Cascades could be said to have its origin in the Yakima Basalt of the Columbia River Basalt Group, the greatest outpouring of lava in the history of North America. The lava spread across western Idaho and eastern Washington and Oregon and flowed to the Pacific Ocean for some 4. Columbia River Basalt Group–outrageous! I can’t stop thinking about the Columbia River Basalt Group–the series of basalt flows that blanketed so much of my state of Oregon about 15 million years ago. Abbreviated as “CRBG”, it covers a lot of Washington too, as well as parts of western Idaho and northern Nevada.

The enlisted men must have recognized it at a glance, this pile of columnar basalt all together resembling a well-weathered gentleman's hat with a work-worn brim. Two centuries later, it would be one of the few Lewis and Clark landmarks left above Columbia River.

The Columbia River Basalt Group is the youngest, smallest and one of the best-preserved continental flood basalt province on Earth, covering overkm 2 (81, sq mi) mainly eastern Oregon and Washington, western Idaho, and part of northern Nevada. The basalt group includes the Steen and Picture Gorge basalt formations.

The Columbia River Basalt Group (CRBG) hosts a regional aquifer system in portions of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho which is the primary, and in many cases the only, water supply for numerous communities, small water systems, individual homes, industry, and agriculture.

In much of the semi-arid Columbia Plateau, portions of the CRBG aquiferFile Size: 4MB.

Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report publication date Complete None. The Columbia River Basalt Group (CRBG) consists of a thick sequence of Miocene flood basalt that covered northern Oregon, eastern Washington, and western Idaho between 17 and 6 million years ago. It is an important regional aquifer system, and, in its folded and faulted flows, it records the late Cenozoic structural evolution of much of the Pacific Northwest.

The Columbia River Flood Basalt Province forms a plateau ofsquare kilometers between the Cascade Range and the Rocky Mountains. In all, more than individual large (average volume cubic km!) lava flows cover parts of the states of Idaho, Washington, and Oregon.

The Columbia River Basalt Group (CRBG) is the youngest, smallest and one of the best-preserved continental flood basalt province on Earth, covering overkm 2 of mainly eastern Oregon and Washington, western Idaho, and part of northern Nevada.

The thick, layered lava flows of the CRBG erupted as flood basalts, which originate as some of the most highly effusive eruptions in the world.

Perhaps the most characteristic feature of the Columbia River Flood Basalt Province is the similarity of individual lava flows.

The North American Cordillera is home to a greater diversity of volcanic provinces than any comparably sized region in the world. The interplay between changing plate-margin interactions, tectonic complexity, intra-crustal magma differentiation, and mantle melting have resulted in a wealth of volcanic landscapes.
