Abstract

We present new data for the age of the Mono Lake Excursion at its type locality. Using the (U-Th)/He system on allanite, we dated Wilson Creek Ash 15 (Lajoie, 1968) to 38.7 ± 1.2 ka (2 SE). The new age for this ash supports the hypothesis (Kent et al., 2002; Zimmerman et al., 2006) that the Mono Lake Excursion is coincident with, and probably the same event as, the Laschamp Geomagnetic Excursion (40.4 ± 2 ka), an event that shares similar magnetic characteristics with the excursion identified at Mono Lake. We also estimate an allanite magma residence time of slightly less than 30 ka based on ^(230)Th/^(238)U disequilibrium and the (U-Th)/He-based eruption age.
