Guatemala Earthquake 1976. South along a secondary fault of the Mixco zone that intersects an excavation for a sedimentation basin in Guatemala City's new water treatment plant. The fault, which dips 60 degrees west (to the right) is visible in the wall of the excavation in the background and was exposed in the line of pits in the floor of the excavation. Soil horizons in the Pleistocene tephra in the wall of the excavation are offset at least 7 meters, indicating repeated movement on this same strand during late Quaternary time. Because of the faulting, the design of the settling basin had to be changed to avoid the fault trace. Available information suggests that at least part of the 5 centimeters displacement...

Ragay Gulf, Philippines, Earthquake 1973. Left lateral offset of the beach line (3.2 meters) at the time of the 1973 Ragay Gulf earthquake. The offset was confirmed by numerous other displaced features nearby, such as rows of coconut trees. The break followed the low pre-existing scarp. Page 9, Earthquake Information Bulletin, v.10, no.1.

Death Valley National Park, California. Furnace Creek Formation at the north end of the Black Mountains. View is southwest and west of Zabriskie Point, an overlook by Highway 190 about 3 miles up Furnace Creek Wash from Furnace Creek Inn. The base of the Furnace Creek Formation is at the topographic break between the badlands and the rougher, higher ground in the distance on the left. Light-colored playa beds about 2,500 feet thick extend to the base of a conglomerate which forms the dark cliff at the right. The beds are dipping to the right (north) into the Texas Spring Syncline. The center of the photograph looks west across Death Valley to the Panamint Range at Aguereberry Point; Tucki Mountain on the right....

Diplomystus, a late-early Eocene herring from the Green River Formation 9 miles west of Kemmerer. About 1/2 natural size. Dorsal scutes partly separated from body. Worm-like objects are fish coprolites containing fragments of fish bones. Specimen prepared by W. R. Hansen. Lincoln County, Wyoming. July 1984.

Quartz overgrowths on sandstone grains after clay formation, Nanushuk Group. Quartzose grains have overgrowths at points of low pressure (pore space) adjeacent to areas that were probably under high pressure (grain contacts). Overgrowths probably develop where clay coatings are absent. A polycrystalline quartz grain (upper left) has a pod of kaolinite growing on its surface. Sample 78ACh23, Kurupa anticline; magnification, 6.3 x 10, photomicrograph. Central North Slope, Alaska. Published as Figure 47A in U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1614. 1985.

Colorado National Monument, Colorado. Eastern end of Kodels Canyon Fault on the west side of Fruita Canyon. There is no visible displacement except for considerable thinning of Wingate Sandstone. The high cliff of Wingate Sandstone on the left rests on slopes of Chinle Formation. The pinon and juniper-covered slope near the middle is Kayenta Formation resting on thinned Wingate Sandstone. Entrada Sandstone forms the low cliffs on the right. Circa 1950. Figure 32, U.S. Geological Survey Professional Paper 451.

Glacier National Park, Montana. Altyn Limestone in the lower slopes of Appekunny Mountain, northeast of Many Glacier Hotel. This view is at the type locality of the formation, close to the site of the former settlement of Altyn. The Lewis overthrust is at the base of the cliffs, and the smooth slopes below are underlain by shale of Cretaceous age, which yields few outcrops. July 6,1901. Figure 2, U.S. Geological Survey Professional Paper 296.
