The Upper Triassic (Carnian–Norian) Martin Bridge Formation of northeastern Oregon, southeastern Washington, and western Idaho is characterized by rapidly shifting depositional processes within a tropical volcanic island arc setting. Martin Bridge sequences in the Hells Canyon and northern Wallowa Mountains document shallow-water peritidal evaporitic sediments that are succeeded by deeper and predominantly subtidal deposits. This indicates drowning of the carbonate platform and a transition to deeper-water turbiditic sedimentation before a late Triassic transition into the overlying mid-Norian to Jurassic Hurwal Formation. At the type locality in the southern Wallowa Mountains, dysaerobic shales, carbonate debris sheets, and turbiditic sediments indicate distal...
