Late Cenozoic tectonic features in glacial sediments, Owens Valley, California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1979)
Correlation of recently mapped sediments and fault scarps with dated Sierra Nevada glacial epics, and measurements of fault displacements, have resulted in estimates of tectonic displacement rates along the study area.
Fault Imaging with High-Resolution Seismic Reflection for Earthquake Hazard and Geothermal Resource Assessment in Reno, Nevada
The Truckee Meadows basin is situated adjacent to the Sierra Nevada microplate, on the western boundary of the Walker Lane. Being in the transition zone between a range-front normal fault on the west and northwest-striking ...
Geology and ore deposits of the Thunder Mountain Mining District, Valley County, Idaho
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1985)
This research identifies and studies the regional geology, stratigraphy, structures, and mineralization associated with the Thunder Mountain mining district located in Valley County, Idaho.
Seismicity and tectonics of the Garfield Hills area Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1989)
The seismicity and tectonics of the Garfield Hills area have been studied. The seismicity of the area sometimes correlates with mapped faults, and is characterized by short-lived, randomly distributed clusters.
Oreana tungsten-bearing pegmatite and related Rocky Canyon stock, Pershing County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1981)
The geology and mineralization of the Oreana Tungsten Mine and Rocky Canyon stock have been studied.
Aftershocks of the May, 1980 Mammoth Lakes, California earthquakes
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1984)
Master-event relocation of aftershocks of the May, 1980 Mammoth Lakes earthquake sequence indicates a complex pattern of faulting in the mountains south of the Long Valley caldera. Locations of 344 aftershocks show two ...
Geology of the Brock Canyon area, Monitor Range, Eureka County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1965)
Paleozoic rocks within the Brock Canyon area were studied with respect to extending the previously mapped structural and stratigraphic features found in the Antelope Valley and east Monitor Range area.
Polyphase deformation of possible Proterozoic to Lower Cambrian Miogeoclinal rocks of the Dinkey Creek pendant, central Sierra Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1991)
The structural and stratigraphic re-evaluation of the Dinkey Creek pendant reveals possible Proterozoic to Lower Cambrian miogeoclinal sediments along the axis of the Sierra Nevada batholith. Polyphase deformation has been ...
