Description: One day. This field trip will investigate emplacement
mechanisms and deformation of several large Cretaceous arc granites in northwestern
Nevada (Sahwave, Nightingale, Fox, Granite, and Selenite Ranges). The trip will
emphasize age, size, and composition of plutons, new fabric studies, evidence for
dextral shearing during emplacement, and regional tectonics.
