Smith Rock geology, White Rvr. washouts on Hwy 35 highlight new issue of Oregon Geology magazine
by Bend Weekly News Sources

A geologic tour of the lower Crooked River Basin; which includes Smith Rock State Park, Ochoco Reservoir, and the Redmond and Prineville areas; is one of the highlights of the newest issue of Oregon Geology Magazine.

Published by the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI), Volume 67, Number 1, Fall 2006 of Oregon Geology is available free online in PDF form at http://www.OregonGeology.com.

Also of interest in Oregon Geology is a look at the geology and the recent debris flows in the upper White River Valley, plus an examination of how agencies respond when a debris flow occurs.

The White River Bridge on Oregon Route 35, east of Mount Hood, after the debris flow events of early November 2006. Note the blue-jacketed person standing in the channel near the center of the bridge span. The debris deposit is roughly 12-18 ft high on the upslope side of the bridge. Debris completely filled the channel and overtopped the bridge deck. Route 35 was re-opened December 9, 2006.

Bachelor, the Three Sisters, the Cascade Lakes region -– and Newberry National Volcanic Monument. OGDC-3 also includes Bend, Redmond, Prineville and the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.

The purpose of the Oregon Geologic Data Compilation project is to assemble the best available geologic map information for the entire state by integrating the work of many individual geologic mappers into a vector digital data set. The data are stored in a geographic information system (GIS) format with links to a relational database. The compilation is thus a "living map" that can change as new information becomes available. Knowledge of and access to GIS and database software applications are essential to the use of the CD version of the compilation.
