The vegetation of the Lower Gordon Ri vel' Basin consists of rainforest, sclerophyll. The Gordon River is often the first river that comes to mind when people speak of kayaking on Vancouver Island. It's one of the bread and butter runs of the southern kayak zone that has multiple sections which tolerate a variety of water levels, and it remains runnable for a long window after it rains. The lower part of the Gordon River is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and contains a cold-climate rainforest and rare trees. As with many rivers in western Tasmania, the water is fresh and drinkable, yet has the colour of weak tea due to the absorption of tannin from button grass growing in the catchment : Southern Ocean.

The Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park is also accessible by boat. Daily cruises depart Strahan on the West Coast for Heritage Landing on the densely forested banks of the lower Gordon River, downstream from where the Gordon and Franklin Rivers meet. The lower Colorado River valley was re-flooded by shallow marine waters during smaller changes in global sea level ~ – Ma, after the river first ran through it, which requires a mechanism. 1.

(Canada) INTRODUCTION The most comprehensive bibliography of stromatolite studies to date was compiled by S.M. Awramik, H.J. Hofmann, and M.E. Raaben, and published in the book Stromatolites (M.R.

The area described is located along the Derwent River from near its junction with the Nive River south-eastwards to just beyond its junc­ tion with the Broad River. It extends to the west as far as the Gordon River and includes a large part of the Florentine Valley and portion of as Size: 1MB. Capsule Geology: The Lower Gordon River is reported to host placer gold, from approximately the confluence with Braden Creek in the north to the river mouth. The area is underlain by metamorphic (slaty schists) and bimodal volcanic rocks of the Jurassic to Cretaceous Leech River Complex. Lake Gordon has a surface area of square miles ( square km) and a storage capacity of ,,, cubic feet (11,,, cubic m). Lake Pedder has a surface area of 93 square miles ( square km). With the lower Gordon River as their immediate concern, environmentalists protested against the effect of future dams on wilderness areas. They intrude the Lower Parmeener Group rocks, and dolerite. There are two kinds of composition, one is high alkali, alumina, silicon and barium containing melanite garnet; the other is high in potassium with nepheline and hauyne. This rock is banatite. Clay from this was mined at Police point, and there are also some gold deposits.
