    The Eocene Chuckanut Formation of Washington's North Cascades comprises as much as m of alluvial strata and is one of the thickest nonmarine sequences in North America. It is exposed in several disconnected outcrop belts that are remnants of what was probably an extensive fluvial system in western Washington. Paleomagnetism and tectonic significance of Eocene basalts from the Black Hills, Washington Coast Range.

    The Ozette Highway section of the Makah Formation spanned the early Refugian to late Refugian, with a sequence that correlates with Chrons C15r-C13r (– Ma), and a long reversed early Zemorrian section that correlates with Chron C12r (30–33 Ma). The type section of the Hoko River Formation correlates with Chron C18r (– Ma).   exploring Washington, travel, blog1 Tiffany D.

    In , the United States territorial governor, Isaac Stevens, recognized the Makah when attempting to annex the Olympic Peninsula. In exchange for their land, Stevens agreed to the demands of the indigenous people. He respected the Makah. “The great father knows what whalers you are-how you go far to sea to take whale. The discovery of a long-buried Makah village at Ozette near the northern tip of the peninsula provided a lot of information about how the Makah people lived for more than 2, years. Discoveries there, along with the traditions passed down by tribal elders, confirmed that the Makah depended on whales and other resources from the sea for most.

The Olympic National Marine Sanctuary and the Flattery Rocks National Wildlife Refuge harbor a diverse collection of animals, especially birds. The Eocene-Oligocene Makah Formation and subjacent middle Eocene Hoko River Formation of the northwestern Olympic Peninsula, Washington, yield mollusks, crustaceans, foraminifera, and early neocete whales; their age has never been precisely established.

We sampled several sections; most samples showed a stable single-component remanence held largely in magnetite and passed a Class. Fossil mollusks associated with eight Oligocene whales from the Makah and Pysht Formations on the northwestern part of the Olympic Peninsula, Washington, suggest that whale carcass sulfide production supported small numbers of some chemosymbiotic invertebrates as.

The Olympic Peninsula is a ‘young’ addition to the west coast of North America, with oldest rocks dating back only about 50 million years. The prime mover in the system has been the Juan de Fuca Plate of oceanic crust moving toward the east from a ‘mid-ocean rise’ of magma deep in the earth.

The Makah Formation of the Twin River Group crops out in a northwest-trending linear belt in the northwesternmost part of the Olympic Peninsula, Wash. This marine sequence consists of meters of predominantly thin-bedded siltstone and sandstone that encloses six distinctive newly named members--four thick-bedded amalgamated turbidite sandstone members, an olistostromal shallow.
