Sedimentary petrology of the upper Nehalem River basin (Van Atta, ). The refine­ mentsi n understanding of the stratigraphy proposed in this paper are the result of petro­ logi c analysis of the formations exposed in this area. Location of map area In the upper Nehalem River basin of northwest Oregon (see Plate I), the late EoceneFile Size: 1MB.

In sedimentary rock. Sedimentary petrology is the study of their occurrence, composition, texture, and other overall characteristics, while sedimentology emphasizes the processes by which sediments are transported and deposited. Sedimentary petrography involves the classification and study of sedimentary rocks using the petrographic microscope.

McBride. p., 14 figs., 25 plates, The stratigraphy of the study area consists of two Tertiary volcanic units (Grays River Volcanics and Columbia River Basalt Group) and four sedimentary units (Cowlitz (subsurface) Keasey, Pittsburg Bluff, and Scappoose formations) that were deposited in the Nehalem forearc basin.

Petrology has three subdivisions: igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary petrology. Igneous and metamorphic petrology are commonly taught together because they both contain heavy use of chemistry, chemical.

Full appropriation of tributary streamflow during summer, a growing population, and agricultural needs are increasing the demand for groundwater in the Willamette Basin.

Greater groundwater use could diminish streamflow and create seasonal and long-term declines in groundwater levels.
