A geologist examines a sequence of Early Cretaceous-aged paleosols (ancient soils) in the Yellow Cat Member of the Cedar Mountain Formation. Many dinosaur fossils are found in these rocks, and the study of paleosols can provide valuable
information about the environments in which these dinosaurs lived.
COMPILATION OF 1970s WOODWARD-LUNDGREN & ASSOCIATES WASATCH FAULT INVESTIGATION REPORTS AND OBLIQUE AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY, WASATCH FRONT AND CACHE VALLEY, UTAH AND IDAHO
Steve D. Bowman, Keith Beisner, and Corey Unger
This nine DVD set contains a descriptive 3-page report and digital files created from the Wasatch fault investigation project performed for the Utah Geological and Mineralogical Survey (now the Utah Geological Survey) and the U.S. Geological Survey by Woodward-Lundgren & Associates. The project was performed to identify surface fault rupture hazard areas along the Wasatch fault and in Cache Valley. This compilation contains digital scans of the three separate Wasatch fault reports, 47 fault maps, and 1326 oblique aerial photographs (frames). The digital files include aerial photograph scans in TIFF format, fault maps in TIFF and Adobe PDF formats, and index maps in Google Earth KMZ, GIS shapefile and Adobe PDF formats. Specialized software (not included) is required to utilize the Google Earth and GIS files, and can be downloaded from the Internet.
This compilation will be useful for professionals involved with paleoseismology investigations; geologic, geotechnical, and environmental assessment and investigation projects; land-use planning and management; government agencies; and the general public and others as an historical archive. Oblique aerial photography was used to highlight certain topographic features, such as fault scarps and traces, for mapping purposes.
