U.S. Geological Survey, North Gemini Drive, Flagstaff, Arizona The remanent magnetization of volcanic rocks has been determined at sites in the San Francisco volcanic field in the southern part of the Colorado Plateau 2 days ago  The first volcanoes in the San Francisco Volcanic Field began to erupt about 6 million years ago, near present-day Williams, Arizona. Subsequently, a kilometer-wide belt of successively younger eruptions migrated eastward, through the area of modern Flagstaff and beyond, toward the valley of the Little Colorado ://

    The geologic map of the central part of the San Francisco volcanic field (called the Central map area) is one of five adjoining geologic maps (fig. 1) prepared under the Geothermal Research Program of the U.S. Geological Sruvey as a basis for interpreting the history of magmatic activity in the volcanic field. The San Francisco field, which is largely Pliocene and Pleistocene in age, is in Remanent magnetizations were determined for sites of volcanic rocks in the San Francisco volcanic field, an area of about sq km in the southern part of the Colorado Plateau. The field includes scattered basaltic cinder cones and flows as well as silicic and intermediate rocks, mostly in voluminous eruptive centers. About 90 percent of the sites yielded clear polarity determinations
