Aeromagnetic data were collected along flight lines by instruments in an aircraft that recorded magnetic-field values and locations. This dataset presents latitude, longitude, altitude, and magnetic-field values.
An isostatic gravity map of the Death Valley groundwater model area was prepared from over 40,0000 gravity stations as part of an interagency effort by the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Department of Energy to help characterize the geology and hydrology of southwest Nevada and parts of California.
The Sawmill Mountain quadrangle is located in the western Transverse Ranges of California, about 10 km west of Frazier Park. It includes Mt. Pinos, Mt. Abel (Cerro Noroeste), a part of the southern San Emigdio Mountains, and straddles an eleven-kilometer reach of the nearly east-west striking "Big Bend" section of the San Andreas Fault.South of the San Andreas Fault, the oldest rocks include undated amphibolite-grade biotite and hornblende-biotite gneiss that is probably early or middle Proterozoic in age. The older gneiss is intruded by strongly deformed and foliated biotite orthogneiss that has an age on biotite of 67.2+0.5 Ma (Late Cretaceous). Several other weakly foliated to massive Late Cretaceous granitic...
Map Showing Depth to Pre-Cenozoic Basement in the Death Valley Ground-Water Model Area, Nevada and California
A depth to basement map of the Death Valley groundwater model area was prepared using over 40,0000 gravity stations as part of an interagency effort by the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Department of Energy to help characterize the geology and hydrology of southwest Nevada and parts of California.
An aeromagnetic map of the Death Valley groundwater model area was prepared from published aeromagnetic surveys as part of an interagency effort by the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Department of Energy to help characterize the geology and hydrology of southwest Nevada and parts of California.
Geologic Map and Digital Database of the Apache Canyon 7.5'Quadrangle, Ventura and Kern Counties, California
This data set maps and describes the geology of the Apache Canyon7.5' quadrangle, Ventura and Kern Counties, California. Created usingEnvironmental Systems Research Institute's ARC/INFO software, thedata base consists of the following items: (1) a map coverage showinggeologic contacts, faults and units, (2) a separate coverage layershowing structural data, (3) an additional point coverage whichcontains bedding data, (4) a point coverage containing samplelocalities, (5) a scanned topographic base at a scale of 1:24,000,and (6) attribute tables for geologic units (polygons), contacts(arcs), and site-specific data (points). The data base is accompaniedby a readme file and this metadata file. In addition, the data setincludes...
Cell maps for each oil and gas play were created by the USGS as a method for illustrating the degree of exploration, type of production, and distribution of production in a play or province. Each cell represents a quarter-mile square of the land surface, and the cells are coded to represent whether the wells included within the cell are predominantly oil-producing, gas-producing, both oil and gas-producing, or dry. The well information was initially retrieved from the Petroleum Information (PI) Well History Control System (WHCS), which is a proprietary, commercial database containing information for most oil and gas wells in the U.S. Cells were developed as a graphic solution to overcome the problem of displaying...
Hydrostructural Maps of the Death Valley Regional Flow System, Nevada and California--Map A: Structural Framework, Neogene Basins, and Potentiometric Surface; Map B: Structural Framework, Earthquake Epicenters, and Potential Zones of Enhanced Hydraulic Conductivity
The locations of principal faults and structural zones that may influence ground-water flow were compiled in support of a three-dimensional ground-water model for the Death Valley regional flow system (DVRFS), which covers 80,000 square km in southwestern Nevada and southeastern California. Faults include Neogene extensional and strike-slip faults and pre-Tertiary thrust faults. Emphasis was given to characteristics of faults and deformed zones that may have a high potential for influencing hydraulic conductivity. These include: (1) faulting that results in the juxtaposition of stratigraphic units with contrasting hydrologic properties, which may cause ground-water discharge and other perturbations in the flow system;...
