Description :
Radiocarbon dating was applied to carbon bearing, charred eolian sediment from beneath the lava flows. Twenty of the more than 60 lava flows of the Crater of the Moon lava field have been dated| their ages range from about 15,000 to about 2000 yr B.P. The ages permit assignment of the flows to eight distinct eruption periods with an average recurrence interval of about 2000 yr. The seven other latest Pleistocene-Holocene lava fields were emplaced in short eruptive bursts.
