Geologic Map of the Southeast Face of El Capitan, Yosemite V

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

FOLDED 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

ROLLED 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.

Earth Scientist's Periodic Table of Elements and Their Ions

FOLDED FORMAT: 1 sheet (36" × 76"), 7 p. text
Compiler: L. Bruce Railsback
Description:
An Earth Scientist’s Periodic Table of the Elements and Their Ions (Revised) is designed to contextualize trends in geochemistry, mineralogy, aqueous chemistry, and other natural sciences. This periodic table of the elements, which acknowledges that most natural matter occurs in charged form as ions rather than in elemental form, is more useful to earth scientists than the conventional one used by chemists. In this completely rearranged table, many elements appear multiple times, because many elements assume a different charge under different natural conditions. The practical result is that many trends in mineralogy, seawater chemistry, soil chemistry, the chemistry of earth's crust and mantle, the chemistry of sediments, and nutrient chemistry become apparent in ways that are not recognizable on conventional, elementally constructed, periodic tables.

FOLDED FORMAT: 1 color plate (approx. 36" x 62") plus 10 p. text
Compiler: B.E. Surpless
Description:
The Geologic Map of the Central Wassuk Range, Western Nevada, displays the effects of large magnitude Middle Miocene extension related to Basin and Range deformation. Extension across the map area was primarily accommodated by multiple generations of east-dipping normal faults, which repeat sections of the Tertiary volcanic and sedimentary stratigraphy. The extensional strain rate for this middle Miocene event is comparable to the highest rates of strain documented in the Basin and Range province.

Geology of the Manuel Benavides Area, Chihuahua, Mexico

FOLDED FORMAT: 1 color plate (approx. 36" by 60") plus 20 p. text
Compiler: Fred W. McDowell
Description:
This map and text cover an area of eastern Chihuahua state adjacent to the Rio Grande and the Big Bend of Texas. The area contains an 1100-m-thick volcanic section very similar in lithology and age (by Ar-Ar dating) to that exposed in both Big Bend National and State Parks. This includes, from older to younger, a heterogeneous sequence very much like to the Chisos Formation, a thick locally derived rhyolitic flow complex comparable to the Tule Mountain trachyandesite, distal thin ignimbrites similar in age to the Mitchell Mesa ash-flow tuff (the largest unit in the Trans-Pecos volcanic field), and a caldera source for both the 31 Ma San Carlos tuff and the 28 Ma Santana tuff. The caldera is an unusual trap-door type with a hinge zone on the southwest and two separate collapse and eruption margins around the north and east. Its outer diameter is approximately 25 km, which is unusually large for the tuffs that erupted from it, suggestive of a shallow collapse. Inflation or tumescence prior to the eruptions modified a preexisting Laramide fold by bowing it outward toward the north and east; a 31.5 Ma granitoid was intruded into the fold axis, resulting in the formation of skarn deposits in the surrounding limestones of the fold.

FOLDED FORMAT
Compilers: J. Ryan Thigpen and Robert D. Hatcher Jr.
Description:
This map represents a synthesis of southern Appalachian Blue Ridge and adjacent Valley and Ridge detailed geologic mapping by numerous authors. The western Blue Ridge in this region, which is bound to the northwest by the Great Smoky and Miller Cove–Cartersville faults, and to the southeast by the Allatoona-Hayesville fault, preserves Neoproterozoic-Ordovician synrift, rift-to-drift, and platform rocks deposited along the southeastern Laurentian margin following the ca. 700 Ma rifting and ca. 565 Ma drifting of Rodinia, and Middle Ordovician clastic wedge rocks (Murphy belt) deposited during the Taconic (Ordovician) orogeny. Southeast of the Allatoona-Hayesville fault, rocks of the central Blue Ridge are dominantly composed of high-grade gneiss, schist, and amphibolite. East of the Chattahoochee–Holland Mountain fault, the eastern Blue Ridge (Tuglaoo terrane) consists of the Ashe–Tallulah Falls Formation and Grenville basement in the Toxaway and Tallulah Falls domes. Several Middle Ordovician to Mississippian granitic (granodiorite, some tonalite) plutons are also present. This sequence was originally deformed and metamorphosed ca. 455 Ma during the Taconic and then transported westward during the Alleghanian (Permian) orogeny.

ROLLED FORMAT: 25 plates—two 4-color plates on 1 sheet
Compilers: D.B. Slemmons, E. Vittori, A.S. Jayko, G.A. Carver, and S.N. Bacon
Description:

This study investigates the active tectonic setting of the Owens Valley graben in the area of the great 1872 earthquake rupture along the Owens Valley fault zone. The area is critical for understanding the tectonics of the southern Walker Lane at the boundary between the Sierra Nevada block and Basin and Range Province. The report compiles known mapped Quaternary faults, provides a context for identifying fault sections, and rationale for delineating major structural blocks in the graben. Many new Late Pleistocene and Holocene faults, particularly west of the 1872 Owens Valley rupture are identified by special low-sun-angle photography. These structures accommodate part of the late Quaternary strain within the eastern California seismic belt.

Geologic Map & Cross Sections of the Flynn Creek ...

Full Title: Geologic Map and Cross Sections of the Flynn Creek Impact Structure, Tennessee

FOLDED FORMAT
Compilers: Jonathan C. Evenick and Robert D. Hatcher Jr.
Description:

The Flynn Creek impact structure is located in northeastern central Tennessee, on the northeast flank of the Nashville dome. Remapping the structure has better delimited the depositional history and impact structure evolution. The structure contains many features characteristic of complex impact structures: concentric normal faults, central uplift, shatter cones, impact breccia, and a modern internal drainage system. In addition, it contains some distinctive impact-related compressional structures, such as thrust faults and buckle folds in the modified crater rim. Four persistent, almost circular, concentric faults delineate the structure, which has a maximum diameter of 4.7 km. This estimate, however, is larger than the previously projected 3.8 km. Structural and surface geologic data indicate impact deformation extended farther from the central uplift than previously demonstrated. The almost circular shape of the impact structure suggests the bolide that produced the impact map have descended in an almost vertical trajectory. Stratigraphic relationships, breccia compositions, possible coeval hydrothermal dolomitization in the impact breccia and modified crater rim, and conodont fossils corroborate impact during the Late Devonian.

Geological Map of the Northern Main Ethiopian Rift

FOLDED FORMAT: plates—one sheet, 4-color
Compilers: Tsegaye Abebe, Piero Manetti, Marco Bonini, Giacomo Corti, Fabrizio Innocenti, and Francesco Mazzarini
Description:
One of the main objectives in unraveling the complex development of a continental rift is to set on the structural evolution and magmatism of the rifting system. In this work we present a new geological map of the Northern Main Ethiopian Rift, compiled using data from field work, analysis of aerial photographs, satellite images, topographic maps, and petrographic and geochemical analyses on rock samples. The new data provided an insight on the timing of rift activity and its tectonomagmatic evolution, evidencing a two-stage evolution of deformation and associated magmatic activity from a Pliocene orthogonal extension to a Quaternary oblique one.

Seasonal Reconstructions of the Earth's Surface at LGM

Full Title: Seasonal Reconstructions of the Earth's Surface at the Last Glacial Maximum
Authors: CLIMAP Project Members


Buy the digital version (not available in print)


Description:
CLIMAP has reconstructed the Earth's surface at the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), approximately 18,000 B.P. The parameters, presented in a series of maps, delineate (1) continental ice caps; (2) sea ice; (3) albedo; (4) sea level; (5) biotically defined surface water masses; and (6) sea-surface temperature (SST) expressed as isotherms, anomalies and seasonality. The LGM world differed from the modern in (a) increased continental ice extent and volume; (b) lowered sea level and decrease in oceanic surface area; (c) increased sea-ice cover in high latitudes; (d) increased surface albedo; and (e) decreased SST. The difference in SST between the LGM and present is greatest in the high latitudes, moderate in the equatorial and boundary current regions, and minimal in the central gyres. The LGM world is characterized by a compression of expanded polar seas and the subpolar and transitional surface water masses beneath the subtropical gyres, which form the thermally and geographically stable units of the oceanic-climatic system.

Geologic Map of the Southeast Face of El Capitan, Yosemite V

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. MCH106R, 1 color plate (approx. 35" by 39")
