BackgroundThe Big Pine (Aberdeen) volcanic field in the Owens Valley contains more than 40 vents over a 1000 km2 region of the Owens Valley. The basaltic field consists of cinder cones that produced lava flows up to 9 km long and a single rhyolitic lava dome. Activity was episodic throughout the Quaternary. Chesterman (1982) considers the latest activity to be of Holocene or late Pleistocene age; other sources attribute the last eruptions to the Pleistocene.
