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.

This digital geologic map summarizes all available geologic information for the Tetilla Peak quadrangle located immediately southwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The geologic map consists of new polygon (geologic map units) and line (contact, fault, fold axis, dike, flow contact, hachure) data, as well as point data (locations for structural measurements, geochemical and geochronologic data, geophysical soundings, and water wells). The map database has been generated at 1:24,000 scale, and provides significant new geologic information for an area of the southern Cerros del Rio volcanic field, which sits astride the boundary of the Espanola and Santo Domingo basins of the Rio Grande rift.The quadrangle includes the...

This data set maps and describes the geology of the San Bernardino Wash 7.5 minutequadrangle, Riverside County, southern California. The quadrangle, situated inJoshua Tree National Park in the eastern Transverse Ranges physiographic andstructural province, encompasses parts of the northwestern Eagle Mountains,east-central Pinto Basin, and eastern Pinto Mountains.The quadrangle is underlain by a basement terrane comprising metamorphosedProterozoic strata, Mesozoic plutonic rocks, and Jurassic and Mesozoic and (or)Cenozoic hypabyssal dikes. The basement terrane is capped by a widespread Tertiaryerosion surface preserved in remnants in the Pinto and Eagle Mountains and buriedbeneath Cenozoic deposits in Pinto Basin....

The Elsinore quadrangle is located in the northern part of the Peninsular Ranges Province and includes parts of two structural blocks, or structural subdivisions of the province. The active Elsinore Fault Zone diagonally crosses the southwest corner of the quadrangle, and is a major element of the right-lateral strike-slip San Andreas Fault system. The Elsinore Fault Zone separates the Santa Ana Mountains block west of the fault zone from the Perris block to the east. Internally both blocks are relatively stable and within the quadrangle are characterized by the presence of widespread erosional surfaces of low relief.Within the quadrangle the Santa Ana Mountains block is underlain by undifferentiated granitic rocks...

The Raton basin is a large asymmetric syncline (2500 mi2 area) that extends from Huerfano Park, Colorado to Cimarron, New Mexico. As used here, the basin is defined by the limits of the outcrop of the Trinidad Sandstone. The Cretaceous and Tertiary rocks are sharply flexed to form hogbacks along the western margin of the basin on the east flank of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. These rocks assume more gentle dips along the other margins of the Raton basin and are highly dissected. The Late Cretaceous in the Raton basin was a period of emergence of land and retreat of the Cretaceous epeiric sea. The coastline advanced eastward across New Mexico, as broad prograding deltaic and barrier coastal plains were formed...

New 1:24,000-scale geologic mapping in the Storm King Mountain7.5' quadrangle, in support of the USGS Western Colorado I-70Corridor Cooperative Geologic Mapping Project, provides new dataon the structure on the south margin of the White River upliftand the Grand Hogback and on the nature, history, anddistribution of surficial geologic units.Rocks ranging from Holocene to Proterozoic in age are shown onthe map. The Canyon Creek Conglomerate, a unit presently knownto only occur in this quadrangle, is interpreted to have beendeposited in a very steep sided local basin formed bydissolution of Pennsylvanian evaporite late in Tertiary time.At the top of the Late Cretaceous Williams Fork Formation is aunit of sandstone,...

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.
