Marsh Creek Volcanics

Aspara Drive and Dark Canyon

Ryan Fay and Ray Sullivan received a Mary Bowerman Science and Research Program grant in 2018. Ryan Fay, Geologist at Albion Partners, presented their research on Marsh Creek volcanics at Save Mount Diablo’s Mary Bowerman Science and Research Colloquium in December 2018. This research was an investigation about the intrusive history of volcanic units in the Marsh Creek and northern Diablo area. The purpose was to explain volcanic presence including time of emplacement/eruption, tectonics during formation, and the chemistry of magma.
