Obsidian-hydration dating of fluvially reworked sediments in the West Yellowstone region, Montana

Auteurs :
ADAMS, K. D.
LOCKE, W. W.

Description :
This study evaluates obsidian-hydration dating in postglacial fluvial terraces cut into an outwash plain near West Yellowstone. Fluvial transport fractures obsidian grains. However, some old hydration rinds may be preserved, thus, a grain may record several fracturing events. Multiple evaluations of source chemistry and hydration rates and multiple rind measurements are required to date fracturing events.
