This revised and increased version of Oregon Fossils features a list of all recognized fossils in Oregon going again four hundred million years, in addition to accumulating localities via county, age, rock formation, and released resource. The booklet additionally presents a geologic review of the kingdom, from ocean shores to the excessive desolate tract, from the Blue Mountains to the Siskiyous.

Limited list, there are no general conclusions which can be reached other than that the porosity variation for any given rock or rock type commonly is large and that the average porosity is, perhaps, 15%.

The chemistry of solutions expelled from arenaceous sediments by porevolume reduction is strongly influenced and sometimes totally controlled by the chemical composition of the original pore solutions. The origins and types of subsurface waters and the various factors that control the composition of interstitial solutions in subsurface environments are reviewed. Under the same physical conditions, the chemistry of expelled solutions will be different from the chemistry of pore solutions only to the degree that the arenaceous sediments exhibit membrane-type behavior.
