Geologic map of the Ojo Caliente District: Supplement 1 from "Petrology of the Hopewell Series in the Ojo Caliente of New Mexico" (Thesis)

Eugene Merle Shoemaker
The Hopewell series is a group of pre-Cambrian metamorphic rocks exposed in the Picuris, Petaca, and Ojo Caliente districts of northern New Mexico. In the Ojo Caliente district these and other pre-Cambrian rocks are exposed in an elongate inlier in the surrounding Tertiary strata. This inlier represents a low mountain or monadnock on an early Tertiary erosion surface. The Hopewell series has been divided into two phases, the Picuris basalt and a series of metasedimentary...

Structure sections – Part II: Supplement 4 from "Structural geology of the region between Pacoima and Little Tujunga Canyons, San Gabriel Mountains, California" (Thesis)

Benjamin F. Howell
An area of about 25 square miles in the western part of the San Gabriel Mountains was mapped on a scale of 1000 feet to the inch. Special attention was given to the structural geology, particularly the relations between the different systems of faults, of which the San Gabriel fault system and the Sierra Madre fault system are the most important ones. The present distribution and relations of the rocks suggests that the southern block...

Graphical determination of requisite resistance to sliding for cross-section through hillside at station 12+00 along Parker Avenue, Lone Mountain, San Francisco: Supplement 7 from "Mechanics of landslides" (Thesis)

William Maurice Cogen
The purpose of this investigation was to determine whether landslides could be predicted for hill slopes of known inclinations from data secured by laboratory tests performed on samples of the ground under consideration. Specifically, the investigation was to show whether a correlation existed between experimentally determined values for friction and cohesion of ground and calculated values based upon the configuration of earth masses that had slid. The ability to determine the stability of slopes from...

Geologic map of part of Glenlyon Range and vicinity, Yukon: Supplement 2 from "The texture, origin, and emplacement of the granitic rocks of Glenlyon range, Yukon, Canada" (Thesis)

Richard Bradford Campbell
In Glenlyon range the older pre-intrusive rocks include quartzo-feldspathic schists (Ambibolite facies) with minor carbonate and lime-silicate rocks of the Yukon group overlain by a succession of limestones and slates and phyllites (green schist facies) of the Harvey Group. These rocks form the north limb of an east-west trending anticlinorium. The Drury quartz monzonite is intruded into the axial region of the anticlinorium. This mass grades continuously from a biotite granodiorite core to an outer...

Germanium content of sphalerite: Supplement 9 from "Metallogenic Provinces of the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico" (Thesis)

C. Wayne Burnham
Some of the metallogenic provinces of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico are defined by the geographic distribution of trace elements in the primary sulfide minerals chalcopyrite and sphalerite. The elements investigated include antimony, arsenic, bismuth, cadmium, cobalt, gallium, germanium, indium, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, silver, tellurium, thallium, and tin. Of these elements, cobalt, gallium, germanium, indium, nickel, silver, and tin exhibit the best defined geographic distribution. The data indicate that chalcopyrite is the preferred...

R. J. Weldon
The geology in Cajon Pass, southern California, provides a detailed record of strike slip activity on the San Andreas fault, compressional deformation associated with the uplift of the central Transverse Ranges and an excellent Cenozoic record of syntectonic sedimentation. Age control was established in all of the sediments deposited since the late Early Miocene, using biostratigraphy, magnetostratigraphy, fission-track dating of volcanic ashes, radiocarbon dating, soil development, and the relative stratigraphic and geomorphic position of the...

Generalized geology of the Lava Mountains and vicinity, San Bernardino County, California: Supplement 3 from "Geology and petrology of the Lava Mountains, San Bernardino County, California" (Thesis)

George I. Smith
The Lava Mountains are a range of low mountains along the northern edge of the Mojave Desert, California. The pre-Tertiary rocks consist of a few small pendants of metamorphic rocks in Atolia quartz monzonite. Overlying these are small patches of volcanic and sedimentary rocks, probably Tertiary, which project into the later formations. The major sedimentary unit is the middle Pliocene Bedrock Spring formation; it consists chiefly of arkosic sandstone and conglomerate with lesser amounts of...
