Panorama with images 042 and 044. View showing section overlying the Eagle at same locality as image 041, including almost the entire thickness of Claggett formation with the base of the light colored Judith River beds overlying it on the right. The nearly horizontal Judith River beds in the distance are beyond a fault. Blaine County, Montana. 1903.

South wall of Little Tahoma Peak, about 400 feet below its summit. Mudflow breccias enclosing streaks, lenses, and tongues of partly brecciated lava. Such mixed accumulations of lava and breccia probably formed from thin lava streams that were shattered by steam explosions as they glided down steep slopes and mixed with mud, slushy snow and melt water. The dips are primary and are as much as 30 degrees. The cliff is about 100 feet high. Mount Rainier National Park, Washington. ca. 1959. Figure 51, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 444.

Panorama formed from photos 80 and 81, from near Montpelier Creek, looking northwest; shows southern tip of uneroded part of overthrust block and position of subordinate branch fault; Carboniferous formations; Thaynes group; Nugget sandstone; Twin Creek limestone. Syncline and anticlines of lower fault block in foreground. Bear Lake County, Idaho. August 25, 1911. Plate 36-C, with graphics, in U.S. Geological Survey. Professional paper 152. 1927.

Lower part of the basal ash flow in the Stevens Ridge Formation on Backbone Ridge. The light-colored ash flow churned through soft saprolite on the pre-Stevens Ridge land surface and included fragments of the saprolite and less-weathered Ohanapecosh rocks in the lower 8 feet of the deposit. Mount Rainier National Park, Washington. ca. 1959. Figure 22, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 444.

Guatemala Earthquake 1976. Offset concrete patch shown in photo eib00153. Photo by R.C. Bucknam, April 18, 1976. Figure 6, page 16, Earthquake Information Bulletin, v.9, no.2.
One of the first government-sponsored demands for integrated assessment to support decision making in the United States is embodied in the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA). Over the past 25 years, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has supported federal agencies’ in evaluating health and environmental impacts as required by NEPA. Many of ORNL’s efforts have focused on complex, programmatic assessments that break new ground and require and integrate expertise from a wide range of technical disciplines. Examples of ORNL projects that illustrate the use of integrated assessment approaches include environmental documentation for: (1) the Department of the Army’s Chemical Stockpile Disposal Program,...

A plug of flow-banded rhyolite in the Sarvent lava complex of South Cowlitz Chimney. The south (right) side of the plug flares outward, truncating and overriding nearly horizontal bedded rocks of the Ohanapecosh Formation. The plug's sheer rock face is about 500 feet high. Mount Rainier National Park, Washington. ca. 1959. Figure 17, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 444.
