Bulletin Geology of the Point Reyes Peninsula, Marin County, California. The onset of Phanerozoic-style plate tectonics may be marked by the preservation of one or more distinct assemblages: (1) oceanic crust, as represented by ophiolite assemblages or by eclogites that represent subducted oceanic crust, (2) island arc volcanic or plutonic series, or (3) accretionary complexes that contain fragments of oceanic crust and lithosphere in a greywacke or serpentinite.

Rb and Sr contents and 87 Sr/ 86 Sr values were determined for samples of eugeosynclinal sedimentary rocks, mostly graywackes, from Oregon and California. These data are compatible with the theory of anataxis of eugeosynclinal sedimentary rocks in orogenic belts to produce granitic magmas provided that the melting occurs within several hundreds of m.y.
