Geologic Map of the Crater Flat Area, Nevada, NBMG M101

1:24,000 scale Geologic Map of the Crater Flat Area, Nevada. Detailed geologic mapping by James E. Faulds, John W. Bell, Daniel L. Feuerbach, and Alan R. Ramelli in 1994. Map includes description of 42 geologic units. The GIS work was in support of the U. S. Geological Survey COGEOMAP program. The Geodatabase specifies feature datasets and feature classes, together with feature attributes, subtypes and domains, suitable for the printed geologic map. In addition to basic geology (lithology, contacts and faults, etc.), the maps may include metamorphic overprints, cross-sections, and explanatory legend-graphics such as correlation charts, used to supplement columnar legends. This geologic map generally includes previously unpublished data obtained by the authors. However the mapping of Pliocene basalts by Crowe and others (1983) and Paleozoic-Proterozoic rocks by Monsen and others (1992) was incorporated into the southern part of the map area. Partial financial support for field work and map preparation was provided by the Nevada Agency of Nuclear Projects through the Center for Volcanic and Tectonic Studies, University of Nevada, Las Vegas; the Center for Neotectonic Studies, University of Nevada, Reno; and NSF grant EAR9120383 (awarded to Faulds). Base map: U. S. Geological Survey Crater Flat 7.5-minute Quadrangle, 1986. To download the map resource and associated report, and GIS zipped data sets, please see the links provided.
