These creeks, like tidal channels ( Iriondo 2004 ), range in width from 100 m to exceptionally 300 m, display a meandering curvature radius of about 200–400 m, and are mainly filled...

Subsequent (younger than 15.3 Ma), more localized eruptions were dominated by calc-alkaline to mildly alkaline lavas associated with Basin and Range extension. Local uplift generated deep canyons, which were filled by andesitic lavas...
