    Paleoenvironments and paleohydrology of the Mojave and southern Great Basin deserts / edited by Yehouda Enzel and Stephen G. Wells and Nicholas Lancaster. Format Book Published Boulder, Colo.: Geological Society of America, Description x, p.: ill., maps ; 28 cm. Other contributors. Over eighty Quaternary scientists have contributed to the fifty-five chapters divided into four main parts. Part 1 treats the areal geology, with emphasis on the stratigraphy of the glaciated areas east of the Rocky Mountains, unglaciated eastern and central United States, and western United States.

    The expression “geological structure” is understood in a broad sense since structures addressed here are associated to the topics of structural geology, sedimentology and quaternary geology. The mountains also trap water in the desert basin, making this a closed basin—all water that falls in the basin stays in the basin. The unique geology, hydrology, and high desert vegetation of the Great Basin are typified in this false color (shortwave infrared, near infrared, green) image of northeastern Nevada, captured by Landsat 5 on June.

    The formation of the Great Basin is analogous to the modern rifting that is going on in the Red Sea basin or the Great Rift Valley in Africa. The history of late Tertiary and Quaternary faulting and tectonism in the Mojave National Preserve is unlike any other geologic province in California. @article{osti_, title = {Late Tertiary and Quaternary geology of the Tecopa basin, southeastern California}, author = {Hillhouse, J W}, abstractNote = {Stratigraphic units in the Tecopa basin, located in southeastern California, provide a framework for interpreting Quaternary climatic change and tectonism along the present Amargosa River.

This paper focuses on the Neogene–Quaternary tectonic evolution of the Lake Van Basin at the located in the Turkish -Iranian Plateau. To better understand the complex tectonic history of the region and determine the paleostress patterns, we investigate and report on the geometric, structural, and kinematic characteristics of the Basin based on field observations of fault-slip orientations.

The Quaternary fault and fold data for the United States has relied heavily on the past contributions, and on new efforts by State geological surveys and the U.S. Geological Survey. The most recent effort began in in support of the International Lithosphere.

The onset of the Quaternary ( Ma) corresponds to significant paleo-environmental events, such as the intensification and southward extension of Northern Hemisphere glaciation. In the North Sea Basin a significant late Cenozoic succession has been identified as a high-resolution archive of paleo-environmental changes during the Pliocene and Pleistocene.
