GSA Memoir 195

The geologic evolution of the Mojave Desert and Southwestern Basin and Range provinces has long been a puzzle, in spite of its key position at the junction of several important tectonic provinces. The 16 contributions in this volume clarify this enigmatic history and range from field geologic studies to seismologic, seismic reflection, and gravity interpretation. Several contributions discuss the heretofore poorly known geology and geophysics of military bases. The volume includes a 1:250 000 geologic map encompassing the region from the central Mojave Desert to the Coso Range, and a CD-ROM with 10 detailed geologic maps and the compilation map in both graphical and geographic information system format
