Abstract

Rhyolite domes and rhyolite and basalt flows near Coso Hot Springs in the Coso Range, California, give K-Ar ages that range from about 0.04 ± 0.02 m.y. to 0.96 ± 0.19 m.y. Most of the units appear to be between 0.05 and 0.15 m.y. old. The total volume of erupted rhyolitic magma is about 2.4 km3. The age, volume, and composition of these volcanic rocks indicate that the Coso volcanic field is a potential geothermal resource area. © 1975 Geological Society of America.
