Hydrochemistry of runoff from a 'cold-based' glacier in the High Artic (Scott Turnerbreen, Svalbard)
Drumlin evolution and ice sheet oscillations along the NE Atlantic margin, Donegal Bay, western Ireland
Between 27 and 11 kyr ago, during the last major (Naptowne) glaciation, the northwestern and western Kenai Peninsula and the Cook Inlet trough were covered by ice except for local nunataks and small refugia, like the Caribou Hills. Landforms related to four glacial stades are recognized and paleogeographic maps document ice limits, drainage systems, glacial-impounded lakes, and glaciomarine terraces. Numerous multidisciplinary studies of glacial, vegetation, and insect histories document Holocene climatic changes.
Late Cenozoic depositional history of the western Svalbard continental shelf, controlled by subsidence and climate
The Quaternary Geologic Map of the Lake Erie 4� x 6� Quadranglewas mapped as part of the Quaternary Geologic Atlas of the United States.The atlas was begun as an effort to depict the areal distribution ofsurficial geologic deposits and other materials that accumulated orformed during the past 2+ million years, the period that includes allactivities of the human species. These materials are at the surface ofthe earth. They make up the "ground" on which we walk, the "dirt" inwhich we dig foundations, and the "soil" in which we grow crops. Mostof our human activity is related in one way or another to these surfacematerials that are referred to collectively by many geologists asregolith, the mantle of fragmental and...
Surficial deposits and materials in the eastern and central UnitedStates (east of 102 degrees west longitude)
The surficial geologic map of the Eastern and Central United Statesdepicts the areal distribution of surficial geologic deposits and othermaterials that accumulated or formed during the past 2+ million years,the period that includes all activities of the human species. Thesematerials are at the surface of the earth. They make up the "ground"on which we walk, the "dirt" in which we dig foundations, and the �soil�in which we grow crops. Most of our human activity is related in oneway or another to these surface materials that are referred tocollectively by many geologists as regolith, the mantle of fragmentaland generally unconsolidated material that overlies the bedrockfoundation of the continent. The map is based...
Large-scale channel fill structures in Late Ordovician glacial deposits in Mauritania, western Sahara
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.
The Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) has conducted 1:63,360-scale geologic mapping of the Eagle A-1 Quadrangle.The area is part of the 100-year old Fortymile mining district and is located in eastern Alaska near the Alaska-Yukon border. This map illustrates the distribution of a variety of unconsolidated deposits and undifferentiated bedrock in the Eagle A-1 Quadrangle, Fortymile mining district. It was prepared by the interpretation of 1:63,360-scale, false-color, infrared aerial photographs taken from July 1978 through August 1981 and is locally verified by ground observations during field visits.The results should be considered reconnaissance in nature. The dominant unconsolidated deposit...
Surficial-geologic map of the Kavik River area, west-central Mount Michelson Quadrangle, northeastern Brooks Range, Alaska
During the 2006 field season, the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys conducted remote mapping as part of the Kavik River STATEMAP project.This surficial-geologic mapping was conducted to provide additional detail to the STATEMAP comprehensive geologic mapping as well as to serve as a stand-alone map publication.
Magnetic stratigraphy and sedimentology of Holocene glacial marine deposits in the Palmer Deep, Bellingshausen Sea, Antarctica: implications for climate change?
This map is a compilation of previously unpublished and published data, as well as from updated field mapping. This publication offers a 1:125,000-scale map sheet accompanied by a booklet containing a summary of the geology, a colored terrane map, map unit descriptions, a summary table listing selected mineral deposits and energy resources, references, and a correlation of map units. The text (in the report) describes the geology and resource potential of a highly mineralized region centered in the Farewell silver-lead-zinc district southeast of McGrath. Potentially important coal resources flanking the Alaska Range are also described in the map area.
This report provides detailed (1:63,360-scale) mapping of portions of U.S. Geological Survey Circle B-2 (1955), B-3 (1955), B-4 (1952), C-2 (1955), C-3 (1955), and C-4 (1952) quadrangles. The area is part of the Circle mining district and adjacent to the Fairbanks mining district. This report includes detailed geologic, structural, stratigraphic, and geochronologic data. Based on the resulting geologic maps, field investigations, and laboratory materials analyses, the project has also generated derivative maps of geologic construction materials and geologic hazards.
