Geologic map of the Lookout Ridge quadrangle, compiled from previously published and unpublished sources. This map is part of a collection of digital maps of northern Alaska, that span the transition from the Brooks Range to the Arctic coastal plain.
The paper version of the Geologic Map of the eastern part of the Challis National Forest and vicinity, Idaho was compiled by Anna Wilson and Betty Skipp in 1994. The geology was compiled on a 1:250,000 scale topographic base map. TechniGraphic System, Inc. of Fort Collins Colorado digitized this map under contract for N.Shock. G.Green edited and prepared the digital version for publication as a GIS database. The digital geologic map database can be queried in many ways to produce a variety of geologic maps.
Alska is a complex amalgamation of tectonic blocks with diverse histories. Sedimentary basins that are formed on these blocks both before amalgamation and as a result of collisions between them record the tectonic history of this complex region. Thermal-maturity data-indicators of maximum burial temperatures-provide important constraints both on basin evolution and on terrane amalgamation. To help elucidate these relations, and to provide constraints for hydrocarbon assessments, the U.S. Geological survey (USGS) has compilied thermal-maturity data from Alaska for many decades. This report is a digital release of our current understanding of thermal-maturity patters in Alaska.
In 2006-2007, Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) geologists traversed and collected rock samples from ridges on the north side of Granite Mountain in the Mount Hayes D-3 Quadrangle to supplement existing literature with additional details about the variations in texture, lithology and orientation of the 'Granite of Granite Mountain' (map unit grgm) described by Nokleberg and others (1992). The digital data files for this report provide station locations and observations recorded in the geologists' field notes. Outcrop observations describe fine- to medium-grained granodiorite and medium- to coarse-grained tonalite units which appear to be in contact with each other on the ridges north of...
