The Mound Spring quadrangle, the southwestern-most 7.5'quadrangle of the area of the Las Vegas 1:100,000-scalequadrangle, is entirely within the Pahrump Valley, spanning theNevada/California State line. New geologic mapping of thepredominantly Quaternary materials is combined with new studiesof gravity and geochronology in this quadrangle. Elevenpredominantly fine-grained units are delineated, including playasediment, dune sand, and deposits associated with several cyclesof past groundwater discharge and distal fan sedimentation.These units are intercalated with 5 predominantly coarse-grainedalluvial-fan and wash gravel units mainly derived from the SpringMountains. The gravel units are distinguished on the basis...

This surficial-geologic map shows the distribution of unconsolidated deposits and undifferentiated bedrock in the Faith Creek area in the Circle A-4, A-5, B-4, and B-5 quadrangles. This map was prepared principally by the interpretation of 1:63,360-scale, false-color, infrared aerial photographs taken in 1979 and 1981 and is locally verified by ground observations during field work in 2007.

A digital dataset of the geomorphology of the Lower Mississippi River Valley in Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas, Tennessee, Louisiana, and Mississippi was developed from Roger T. Saucier’s “Geomorphology and Quaternary Geologic History of the Lower Mississippi Valley, Volumes I and II” (1994) as part of the Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP) Regional Water Availability Study. The maps included in the 1994 reports provide a comprehensive overview of the previously misunderstood alluvial valley geology and characterize twenty-nine Pleistocene and Holocene alluvial deposits, such as point bars, abandoned channels, backswamps, and natural levees. Each map was georeferenced to North American Datum 1983 and projected to USA...

Drainage channels are among the most conspicuous surficial features of deserts, but little quantitative analysis of their influence on plant distributions is available. We analysed the effects of desert stream channels (?washes?) on Larrea tridentata and Ambrosia dumosa density and cover on an alluvial piedmont in the Mojave Desert, based on a spatial analysis of transect data encompassing a total length of 2775 m surveyed in 5 cm increments. Significant deviations from average transect properties were identified by bootstrapping. Predictably, shrub cover and density were much reduced inside washes, and elevated above average levels adjacent to washes. Average Larrea and Ambrosia cover and density peaked 1�2?1�6...

Part of dissected alluvial fan shown in 269-272, showing an old channel (near top end a little to left) cut by a later deeper one. San Bernardino County, California. November 6, 1919.

The Tyonek area in the northwestern Cook Inlet trough is rich in petroleum, coal, geothermal, aggregate, and timber resources, but the detailed geologic mapping necessary for planning future resource development exists only in part of the area. This report and geologic map provide basic surficial-geologic information useful for exploiting those resources and planning future utility corridor developments. In addition to mapping of surficial geologic units, we provide discussion of strategraphic evidence pertaining to physiographic relations and geologic history of volcaniclastic deposits derived from ancestral Mount Spurr, multiple phases of Quaternary glacial activity, Chakachatna River valley landslide complexes...

This product consists of Adobe Acrobat .PDF format documents for 10surficial geologic strip maps along the Animas River watershed from itsmajor headwater tributaries, south to Durango, Colo. The Animas Riveroriginates in the San Juan Mountains north of the historic mining townof Silverton, Colo. The surficial geologic maps identify surficialdeposits, such as floodplain, and terrace gravels, alluvial fans,glacial till, talus, colluvium, landslides, and bogs. Sixteen primaryunits were mapped that included human-related deposits and structures,eight alluvial deposits, four colluvial deposits, one glacial deposit,one travertine deposit, and undifferentiated bedrock. Each of thesurficial geologic strip maps has .PDF...

This report presents the findings of a geologic and geotechnical evaluation of a landslide at the Yukon River bridge (the E.L. Patton Bridge). The Yukon River bridge landslide occurred in fall 2012 between approximately 375 and 575 feet west of the bridge. Although there was no damage to the bridge foundation, the landslide's close proximity to the bridge and concerns over additional failures prompted multiple evaluations, including landslide documentation, drainage assessments, and geotechnical studies. This report was prepared to convey the general characteristics of the rock mass, characteristics of rock discontinuities, and the geomorphic expression of the 2012 landslide in the vicinity of the bridge. We determined...
Slope wetlands generally occur at breaks in slope where discharging ground water maintains moist soil conditions. They often are found on the perimeter of highly permeable alluvial fans, but there have been no detailed hydrologic studies of these particular wetlands. We combined stream and spring flow measurements with five years of water-level and piezometric data to understand the hydrology of a 1.6 ha slope wetland at the base of a 5.2 ha alluvial fan in the central Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Step changes in streamflow inputs resulting from an upstream water diversion helped confirm the linkages inferred from the hydrometric data. Nearly 30% of the streamflow along a 180-m reach on the alluvial fan was lost...

Looking toward head of alluvial fan from a point at right side of No. 267. The dissection of fan shown in 266 - 267 begins farther down the cone. San Bernardino County, California. 1919.

During 2006 and 2007 the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys conducted reconnaissance surficial-geologic mapping in segment 1 of the Alaska Highway corridor, which straddles the Alaska Highway through the Tanana River valley from Delta Junction to the eastern boundary of the Mt. Hayes Quadrangle. Surficial-geologic deposits were initially mapped by interpreting ~1:63,360-scale, false-color infrared aerial photographs taken in August 1980 and field verified in 2006-2007.
