Environmental Geochemical Studies of Selected Mineral Deposits in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, Alaska

Description: From abstract: Environmental geochemical investigations took place in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve (WRST), Alaska, between 1994 and 1997. Areas studied include the historic Kennecott stratabound copper mines and mill area; the historic mines and mill in the Bremner district, where gold was produced from polymetallic veins; the sporadically active gold placer mines at Gold Hill; the undisturbed, unmined porphyry copper-molybdenum deposits at Orange Hill and Bond Creek; and the historic mines and mill at Nabesna, where gold-bearing iron skarn deposits were exploited. The cooperative study between the U.S. Geological Survey and the National Park Service focused on identifying and characterizing geochemical signatures associated with these mineralized areas. Sample media included surface water, bedload sediment, rock, mine waste, and mill tailings samples.

[Evolution of Sedimentary Basins/Onshore Oil and Gas Investigations--Santa Maria Province: Chapters Y and Z]

Description: From abstract: A complex Neogene history characterizes the offshore Santa Maria basin and the northwest margin of the western Transverse Ranges, California. This history includes the transition from subduction to a transtensional and then transpressional plate boundary, including about 900 of clockwise rotation of the western Transverse Ranges. This report uses seismic reflection data to document the geometry of structures that accommodated this deformation and offshore well data to date and correlate the sediments which were affected by the different tectonic episodes.

[Evolution of Sedimentary Basins/Onshore Oil and Gas Investigations--Santa Maria Province: Chapters W and X]

Description: From abstract: Bulletin W is about the deformation of the Mesozoic Franciscan Complex of the Eastern Santa Maria basin in California. Bulletin X is about the regional thermal maturity of the surface rocks of the mentioned basin as well as the Santa Barbara-Ventura basin area in California.

Geology of the Pennsylvanian and Permian Cutler Group and Permian Kaibab Limestone in the Paradox Basin, Southeastern Utah and Southwestern Colorado

Description: From abstract: This report talks about the geology of the Pennsylvanian and Permian Cutler Group that consists of the lower Cutler beds, Cedar Mesa Sandstone, Organ Rock Formation, White Rim Sandstone, and De Chelly Sandstone. The report also talks about the Permian Kaibab Limestone in the Paradox Basin that overlays the Cutler.

Archean and Early Proterozoic Tectonic Framework of North-Central United States and Adjacent Canada

Description: From abstract: This report contains the analysis of the southern part of the Canadian Shield and the subsurface of the southern interior platform where they comprise two Archean cratons and three Early Proterozoic collisional orogens.

Carbon Dioxide in Mississippian Rocks of the Paradox Basin and Adjacent Areas, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona

Description: From abstract: This report is about six gas samples that were obtained from the Mississippian Leadville Limestone in the McElmo field, Colorado, and the Lisbon field, Utah. These samples were recorded to contain a high reading of carbon dioxide and the report investigates these results.

Fluvial Architecture of the Lower Cretaceous Lakota Formation, Southwestern Flank of the Black Hills Uplift, South Dakota

Description: From introduction This report describes large-scale depositional units referred to as architectural elements, interpreted from outcrops of three distinct fluvial sandstone units of the Lakota Formation in the southwestern Black Hills area of Custer and Fall River Counties, South Dakota. These fluvial deposits formed near the end of an episode of continental deposition that began when the Jurassic Sundance sea regressed from the region and ended when the Early Cretaceous Skull Creek sea encroached from the north in Albian time.

Geology of Pre-Pennsylvanian Rocks in the Paradox Basin and Adjacent Areas, Southeastern Utah and Southwestern Colorado

Description: From abstract: This report is about the geology of pre-Pennsylvanian rocks in the Paradox basin and its adjacent areas--such as the Mississippian strata, the Upper Devonian rocks, and the Upper Cambrian--in southeastern Utah and southwestern Colorado.

[Evolution of Sedimentary Basins--Paradox Basin: Chapters C and D]

Description: From abstract: The report for document C is about the tectonic trends of the northern part of the Paradox Basin of southeastern Utah and southwestern Colorado, as derived from Landsat multispectral scanner imaging and geophysical and geologic mapping. The report for document D is about an uncontrolled X-band airborn radar-image mosaic that was compiled for the western three-fifths of the Moab 1° x 2° quadrangle of southeastern Utah and southwestern Colorado.

Gravity and Aeromagnetic Studies of the Powder River Basin and Surrounding Areas, Southeastern Montana, Northeastern Wyoming, and Western South Dakota

Description: From abstract: This report contains complete Bouguer anomaly, isostatic residual anomaly, and horizontal gradient anomaly gravity maps of the Powder River Basin and surrounding areas in southeastern Montana, northeastern Wyoming, and western South Dakota were compiled using gravity data from 21,528 stations. A total-intensity anomaly aeromagnetic map with 3 mile spaced east-west flight-lines is also presented. Also included is an analysis of these maps and data, focusing on gravity and aeromagnetic studies.

Landslides in Colluvium

Description: From introduction: This report describes the Delhi Pike area, which is an area of landsliding we believe to be representative of landslides in colluvium throughout the Cincinnati metropolitan area. The area has been the focus of several detailed studies reported in other chapters in this bulletin. The purpose of the report is to describe the physical setting and movement styles of the landslides and, thus, to provide a context for the more narrowly focused chapters that follow.
