FOR THE McCLOUD RIVER, CALIFORNIA

Flanking much of the lower McCloud River are large limestone outcrops of the Baird Formation. This limestone formation has gained recognition in scientific circles for the numerous extinct mammal bones found in several of its caves and able to flush out the sediment. This in time

Permian Carbonate Platform Development in an Island

The McCloud Limestone, eastern Klamath terrane, California, represents one of several areas of carbonate deposition in an Early Permian island arc west of North America. The McCloud formed isolated platforms about 30 km long. Platform development began on volcanic highs as bank deposits and ramps of mixed volcaniclastic and carbonate sediments. Continued bank growth resulted in slope

McCloud Limestone, Eastern Klamath Mountains, California

McCLOUD LIMESTONE The McCloud Limestone varies from 50 to 700 m in thickness and ranges from early Wolfcampian to early Leon-ardian age (Skinner and Wilde, 1965). The formation preserves a varied assemblage of carbonate facies and a diverse biota, and it accumulated in a shallow open marine setting (Dem-irmen and Harbaugh, 1965; Wilson, 1982).

Permian limestone block has yielded Early Permain fusulinids of probable McCloud Zone A affinity (C.H. Stevens, written commun., 1985), and the Triassic limestone blocks have yielded Late Triassic (late Carnian and Norian) fossils equivalent to those in the Hosselkus Limestone (Diller, 1892; Harwood,

Volcaniclastic and carbonate sedimentation in late

The Carboniferous Baird Formation and Early Permian McCloud Limestone, Eastern Klamath Mountains, California, record depositional relations of volcaniclastic and carbonate sediments within an island-arc setting. Pennsylvania parts of the Baird include interbedded mudstone, sandstone, and pebbly sandstone of volcaniclastic composition. These beds accumulated by gravity displacement as

The time-transgressive Upper Permian Bollibokka Group (Nosoni and Dekkas Formations) succeeds the McCloud Limestone, comprising thick sequences of volcanogenic debris, intercalated lava, and, in the upper part, lenses of shallow-water limestone. The Upper Permian strata reflect volcanism and rapid subsidence within the are.

Volumetric and Sedimentation Survey of Lake Limestone

sedimentation survey estimates Lake Limestone to have an average loss of capacity between 481 and 636 acre-feet per year since impoundment due to sedimentation below conservation pool elevation (363.0 feet above mean sea level, NGVD29). The sedimentation survey indicates sediment accumulation varies throughout the reservoir. There is heavy
