Description :
At Sheep Mountain Bog, near Missoula, Montana a late-glacial tephra, that probably fell in late summer, is preserved in lake deposits. Sediment surrunding the ash was 14C dated to about 11,200 yr B.P. Electron-microprobe analyses of the volcanic glass and horublende phenocrysts from this ash layer indicate that they are similar in major-element chemistry to those of Glacier Peak layer G previously considered to be about 12,000 yr old or older.
