GSA Special Paper 410.

This volume in honor of William P. Irwin (U.S. Geological Survey) has 23 chapters focusing on various aspects of the complex tectonic and petrologic history of the Klamath Mountains province, northwestern California and southwestern Oregon. An introductory chapter reviews the development of tectonic concepts for the province and regional and historical context for the subsequent chapters. The bulk of the volume focuses on the Jurassic history of the province, but it also includes important contributions on the older geologic history of eastern parts of the province and a review of the Neogene history of the province. Several chapters contrast terranes of the Klamath Mountains province with possible analogous terranes in the Sierran Foothills to the south or Blue Mountains province to the northeast. An accompanying CD-ROM includes classic geologic maps of the province by Irwin, a bibliography of the province compiled by Irwin, descriptions of fossil localities in the Triassic and Paleozoic belt, several new geologic maps of Late Jurassic plutonic complexes, and much new geochemical data. This volume will be of interest to regional geologists; structural geologists and tectonicists; petrologists; geochemists and isotope geologists; and geophysicists.
