    The last advance of the Puget glacial lobe into the central part of the Puget Sound lowland of western Washington occurred during the Vashon Glaciation, and was preceded by a prolonged interglacial epi­ sode. The transition from late interglacial time to Vashon glacial time is recorded in Seattle by a conformable sequence of sedimentsCited by: Abstract. Thirty-eight species of well-preserved, calcareous benthonic Foraminifera and 30 species of macrofossils, both characterized by low species diversity and low faunal abundance, were identified from late Pleistocene Everson-age glacial-marine sediments in the northern Puget-Fraser by: 7.

His doctoral dissertation was entitled Pleistocene Geology of the Northern Part of the Puget Lowland, Washington. Easterbrook has conducted geologic research in the North Cascade Range, Puget Lowland, Columbia Plateau, Rocky Mountains, New Zealand Alps, Argentine Andes, and various other parts of the world.

The rhyolitic Lake Tapps tephra was deposited about myr ago, shortly after culmination of the early phase of the Salmon Springs Glaciation in the Puget Lowland. It is contained within sediments that were deposited in ponds or lakes in front of the reteating glacier. An herb-dominated tundra existed in the southern Puget Lowland at that time.

Lake Tapps tephra is most likely the product of an eruption that in part was phreatomagmatic. It forms an early Pleistocene stratigraphic marker across the southern sector of the Puget Lowland and provides a link between Puget lobe sediments of the Cordilleran Ice Cited by: Don J.

The Puget Lowland region is a wide low-lying area between the Cascade Range to the east and the Olympic Mountains to the west.

The region extends from the San Juan Islands in the north to past the southern end of the Puget Sound. It is known for its scenic coastlines, bustling urban ports, and rich farmlands to the south. The northern Puget Lowland of Washington State, USA, provides an exceptional opportunity not only to examine grounding line processes associated with marine-based ice sheets, but also to relate subaerial outcrop to marine geological observations of grounding line landforms and sedimentary processes in Antarctica and the deglaciated Northern Hemisphere.

Puget Lowland –the low area on the cross-section, just east of the Olympics. Largely covered by water of Puget Sound, the Puget Lowland was buried by thousands of feet of ice during the Pleistocene. The most recent advance, called the “Vashon Stade” left the most obvious marks. Pleistocene Glaciation in the Southern Part of the North Cascade Range, Washington Cascades formed where the valleys of the South and Middle Forks of the Snoqualmie River and the Cedar River meet the Puget Lowland, contains an array of landforms and sediments formed during at least two such incursions of northern ice.

The Vashon Glaciation, Vashon Stadial or Vashon Stade is a local term for the most recent period of very cold climate in which during its peak, glaciers covered the entire Puget Sound and Strait of Juan de Fuca as well as present day Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia and other surrounding areas in the western part of present-day Washington (state) of the United States of ent: North America.

INTRODUCTION The Pleistocene chronology of Cited by: The Puget Sound is part of the larger geologic province of the Puget Lowland.

Both were sculpted by the thick and extensive glaciers that advanced south to just beyond Olympia. Glacial till (sediment deposited directly by the ice) and outwash (sediment deposited by meltwater in front of the glacier) make up most of what is found at or near the.

Glaciers filled and leveled the region, gouging out channels and trenches that later would become such terrain features as Puget Sound, Lake Washington and Hood Canal. Ice-borne "erratic" rocks from British Columbia have been found in the low country east of Puget Sound and on the islands within the sound and Admiralty Inlet.
