Cook Inlet has been recognized as the second-largest petroleum province in Alaska, second only to the North Slope. The south-central Tyonek Quadrangle is an area of significant geologic interest because it is the only location in Cook Inlet where the entire producing stratigraphy of the basin is exposed on the surface. Additionally, this area encompasses the structural boundary between the forearc basin and its sediment source rocks. To better understand the petroleum system and the geologic relationships between the exhumed arc intrusive rocks and adjacent Cenozoic stratigraphy of the Cook Inlet forearc basin, during the summer of 2010 the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys conducted a federally-funded...

Yosemite National Park, California. Glaciated rocks between Mono Pass and Parker Pass in the Sierra Nevada. The direction of ice motion was from right to left. A joint face on the lee side, exposed by the plucking away of a block, remains unscored. 1903.

Yosemite National Park, California. Glaciated rock between Mono Pass and Parker Pass. The direction of ice motion was from the foreground on the right toward the distance on the left. An angular cavity, due to the plucking of a block separated by joint planes, was modified by subsequent abrasion. The hill beyond is a spur of Mount Gibbs. 1903.

Photomicrograph of vein rock shown in photo 37, with plain light, showing orthoclase, or, fractured and veined by quartz q. Bartow County, Georgia. Circa 1944. Plate 12-C, in U.S.Geological Survey Professional paper 224. 1950.
thumbnail
Yosemite National Park, California. Glaciated floor and side of upper Merced Canyon. All the rock features shown are smoothed and polished by the ice. In few places in the world is glacier polish more abundant than here. The row of stones in the foreground serves to mark the trail across the otherwise featureless rock floor. Circa 1914. Plate 36, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 160.

Topography of the Oatman district: Leland Hill from the southeast, the shaft and mill low down in front of the hill are those of the Vivian mine. Higher and a little to the left is the Mitchell shaft of the Leland vein is marked by a line of tunnels and dumps to the right or east slope of the hill. The prevailing rock in the view is the Alcyone trachyte. Mohave County, Arizona. 1921. Plate 3-B in U. S. Geological Survey. Bulletin 743. 1923.

Dundee limestone at Sibley quarry, stripped of its covering of drift. The rock surface is smoothed, grooved and striated by an ice sheet, probably Illinoian. The grooves and furrows, in which the boy sits, strike southward. The striae in the foreground strike northwestward; view northwestward. Wayne County, Michigan. 1916. Plate 2 in U.S. Geological Survey. Folio 205. 1917.

Colorado National Monument, Colorado. Ladder Creek Monocline and Redlands Fault. View is northwest from a point near Little Park Road east of the monument. No Thoroughfare Canyon in the foreground, which is bordered on the left by northeastward-dipping beds of Wingate Sandstone at the northwest end of Ladder Creek Monocline. Old Serpents Trail, the lower part of which is barely visible, ascends this dipping block of rock. The dark Proterozoic rocks form the flat-topped bluff on the right and are exposed by the Redlands Fault which lies just above the sharply upturned remnants of the Wingate Sandstone. 1976. Figure 29, U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin 1508.
