    Abstract

    Flood basalt flows of the Columbia River Basalt Group commonly exhibit well-developed colonnade and entablature structures formed during cooling of individual flows. A model is decribed that can be used to explain the occurrence of repeated entablature and colonnade by considering the effects of intermittent inundation.-after Authors
