Geologic Map of the Southeast Face of El Capitan

Full title: Geologic Map of the Southeast Face of El Capitan, Yosemite Valley, California
Compilers: Roger L. Putnam, Allen F. Glazner, Bryan S. Law, and Greg M. Stock
Description:
El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, California, is one of the most iconic landforms in the world. The ~1-km-tall vertical southeast face of El Capitan provides an unparalleled exposure of the interior of the Sierra Nevada Batholith at the point of interaction among seven granitic units from two intrusive suites: the intrusive suite of Yosemite Valley and the intrusive suite of Buena Vista Crest. This unique, vertically oriented, decimeter-resolution geologic map highlights this interaction and provides a crucial third dimension to our understanding of intrusive geometry. High-resolution mapping of such an inaccessible exposure was accomplished by remote sensing using terrestrial LiDAR and gigapixel photography and was ground-truthed by climbing and rappelling. This one-of-a-kind geologic map is of interest to geoscientists and enthusiasts of national parks alike. MCH106F, 1 color plate (approx. 35" by 39")

Geologic map of the Inner Piedmont and Carolina superterrane

Full title: Detailed geologic map of the Inner Piedmont and Carolina superterrane at the northeast end of the Pine Mountain window, Georgia
Compilers: Matthew T. Huebner, Justin R. Rehrer, Robert D. Hatcher, Jr., and Andrew L. Wunderlich
Description:
This geologic map is a 1:50,000-scale compilation of several 1:12,000- and 1:24,000-scale detailed mapping projects centered at the northeast end of the Pine Mountain window in central Georgia. It covers an area of ~2500 km2, and includes portions of the Tugaloo and Cat Square terranes of the Inner Piedmont, the Pine Mountain window (and terrane), and the western flank of the exotic Carolina superterrane (Charlotte terrane?). The nature of the relationships between these terranes, timing and kinematics of their bounding sutures, in addition to plutonism, high-grade metamorphism, and pervasive deformation throughout the map area provide vital data regarding the complex evolution of the southern Appalachian orogen from the Neoproterozoic breakup of Rodinia through the formation of Pangea and its eventual breakup in the Mesozoic.

Map and Cross Sections, Swansea-Clara Peak Area

Full title: Geologic Map and Cross Sections of the Swansea-Clara Peak Area, Buckskin Mountains, West-Central Arizona

ROLLED FORMAT: 2 color sheets (approx. 20" by 34" and 25" by 15")
Compiler: John Singleton
Description:
This 1:12,000-scale geologic map covers ~40 square kilometers in the central portion of the Buckskin-Rawhide metamorphic core complex in west-central Arizona. The map area encompasses the historic Swansea ghost town and Clara mineral district and includes outstanding exposures of the corrugated Buckskin detachment fault--a major extensional structure that juxtaposes mylonitic mid-crustal rocks against Miocene sedimentary rocks. The new mapping, structural data, and cross sections presented in this publication provide important details regarding the Miocene structural evolution of core complexes in the Colorado River extensional corridor, a region that has played a central role in our understanding of large-magnitude extension. This map also documents the local distribution and structure of the early Miocene Swansea Plutonic Suite, one of the largest synextensional intrusive suites in the southern Basin and Range.

Geologic Map of the West-Central Barberton Greenstone Belt

FOLDED FORMAT: 1 color plate (approx. 54.5" x 77")
Compilers: Donald R. Lowe, Gary R. Byerly, and Christoph Heubeck


Named Best Reference Map in the 40th annual CaGIS Map Design Competition


Description:
This 1:25,000 map covers 500 square kilometers of Archean rocks in the Barberton Greenstone Belt (BGB), South Africa—the oldest, best-preserved sedimentary and volcanic sequence on Earth. Five major tectonic cycles are represented in the BGB’s 3.55 –3.22 Ga history—komatiitic volcanism, forming lava plains, begins each cycle, and dacitic volcanism, likely related to an early style of subduction, ends each cycle. These cycles produce small yet stable protocontinental blocks that coalesce by magmatic and tectonic accretion. The BGB rocks provide direct information about the nature and evolution of early Earth and its biota. Carbonaceous cherts occur throughout the sequence, containing microfossils, microbial mats, and stromatolites. Evaporites represent shallow marine environments, whereas ferruginous chert and banded iron formation are indicators of deeper water settings. The BGB also contains a remarkable record of large asteroidal impacts, in eight distal impact layers, each more energetic than the K-T boundary event.

Geological Map of the Western Border of the Cuicateco...

Full Title: Geological Map of the Western Border of the Cuicateco Terrane, Southern Mexico

ROLLED FORMAT: 1 color plate (approx 36" x 40")
Compilers: Edgar Angeles Moreno, Mariano Elias Herrera, Consuelo Macias Romo, Jose Luis Sanchez-Zavala, and Fernando Ortega-Gutierrez
Description:
One of the most spectacular ranges in southern Mexico is the Sierra Madre de Oaxaca, or Cuicateco terrane. For many decades, the geology of this terrane has been very poorly known despite its critical location between two continental blocks with Grenvillian affinities: Oaxacan Complex to the west and Guichicovi Complex to the east. This map constitutes the first systematic project improving the understanding of the geology of an entire tectonostratigraphic terrane; it covers an area about 45 × 15 km, elongated in a NNW direction and located in the western border of the Cuicateco terrane. The western front of the Cuicatecan mountain range is marked by the Oaxaca fault, a long-lived tectonic boundary that separates the Mesozoic crust constituting the main part of the Cuicateco terrane (proto-oceanic basin) from Precambrian granulites of the Oaxacan Complex in the west. The Late Cretaceous-Paleocene tectonic inversion of the former Early Cretaceous Cuicatecan basin, partly bottomed by oceanic crust, resulted in the imbrications of basement and cover units that are noticeably expressed by multiple thrust faults and folds with top-to-the east kinematics.

Geologic Map of the San Emigdio Mountains, S. California

FOLDED FORMAT: 1 color plate (approx. 36" by 62") plus 3 p. text
Compilers: Alan D. Champman and Jason B. Saleeby
Description:
New and existing geologic mapping and geochronology of the San Emigdio Mountains are compiled in this 1:40,000 scale map, establishing the framework for recently published and ongoing studies of Cretaceous assemblages belonging to the Sierra Nevada batholith and the Late Cretaceous San Emigdio Schist. Basement exposures of the San Emigdio Mountains are subdivided into four principal fault-bounded assemblages. When viewed in a regional context, the field relations summarized here constrain the lateral extent of major Laramide detachment systems that were active during Late Cretaceous extensional collapse of the southern Sierra Nevada batholith and adjacent Mojave Desert area and document a highly dismembered and deeply exhumed ancient flat slab system.
