Title: What is the Vaqueros Formation of California and is it Oligocene?: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Hubert G. Schenck

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The Vaqueros formation of California has never been adequately defined as a stratigraphic unit and its Miocene age is based upon assumptions. At least a part of this formation, as mapped by some geologists, is Oligocene, if reliance be placed upon data as reliable as those upon which its Miocene age was postulated.
