Description:1:24,000 scale Carson City Folio Geologic Map, Nevada, Environmental Series, Urban Area Map 1Ag. Detailed geologic mapping by Dennis T. Trexler in 1977. Portions modified from Rogers, D. K. (1975) Environmental geology of northern Carson City, Nevada: University of Nevada, Reno, unpublished M. S. Thesis and Kirkham, R. M. (1976) Environmental geology of western Carson City, Nevada area: University of Nevada, Reno, unpublished M. S. Thesis. Field work supported by U. S. Geologic Survey Earthquake Hazard Reduction Grant No. 14-08-0001-G-24, Geology of the Carson City 7.5' Quadrangle, Carson City County, Nevada, with description of 30 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. Base map: U. S. Geological Survey Carson City 7.5-minute quadrangle, 1968. To download this map, please see the links provided.
