Geological formations related to volcanism in the Canadian Cascade Arc, including the Pemberton Volcanic Belt

The Pemberton Volcanic Belt is an eroded Oligocene-Miocene volcanic belt at a low angle near Mount Meager, British Columbia, Canada. The Garibaldi and Pemberton volcanic belts appear to merge into a single belt, although the Pemberton is older than the Garibaldi Volcanic Belt. The Pemberton Volcanic Belt is one of the geological formations comprising the Canadian Cascade Arc. It formed as a result of subduction of the former Farallon Plate.
