    Lava flows, volcanic buttes, a caldera, and even the course of the Snake River provide evidence for the hot spot’s passage under the Snake River Plain southwest of Yellowstone. The most obvious sign of the volcanic activity associated with the Yellowstone/Snake River Plain hot spot is the dark lava flows that spill across the plain.

The Eastern Snake River Plain (ESRP) is a northeast-trending, kilometer-long depression underlain by Cenozoic volcanic rocks (Fig. 1). Well-known for many examples of volcanic landforms including basalt lava flows, cinder and tuff cones, fissure vents, and shield volcanoes, the ESRP also contains substantial eolian deposits of loess (wind-deposited sandy silt) and sand dunes.

The western part of the Snake River Plain is an intracontinental rift basin about 70 km wide and km long. It is a normal-fault bounded basin with relief due to both tilting toward the center of the basin and evolving normal fault systems.

Maximum depth of Neogene sedi- mentary fill in the basin is km.

The South Menan Butte is currently in private hands, however North Menan Butte is publicly owned and has been designated as a National Natural Landmark and a Research Natural Area by the United States of rock: late Pleistocene, approximat YBP. Well yields above 3, gallons per minute are not uncommon.

Transmissivity is very high, and commonly exceeds approximat square meters per day in many places. Total ground-water storage in the upper meters of the aquifer is estimated at to million acre-feet, roughly the equivalent of Lake Erie.

/ GEOLOGY AND GROUND WATER RESOURCES OF DUVAL COUNTY, TEXAS,pb. The Eastern Snake River Plain (ESRP) in southern Idaho is a region of high heat flow. Sustained volcanic activities in the wake of the passage of Yellowstone Hotspot have turned this region into an area with great potential for geothermal resources.

Numerous hot springs with temperatures up to 75 ºC are scattered along the margins of the plain. 1 Stearns, H. T., Crandall, L., and Steward, W. C., Geology and ground-water resources of the Snake River Plain in southeastern Idaho: U.

It is located within a graben of the Northern Basin and Range Province. Though it is not actually part of the ESRP, it is similar in its mineralogy, geochemistry, and bimodal volcanism (McCurry et al., ). However, shield volcanoes are less common than in the ESRP and more.Snake River Plain: Chapter Three Click on the titles below to access field guides in pdf format.
