Geology of Death Valley National Park

and surrounding region

Compiled by
Philadelphia J. Morrow and Michael N. Machette,
U.S. Geological Survey, Denver, CO

The following list of approximately 3,750 references was collected from National Park Service and U.S. Geological Survey files, from a literature search using GEOREF, and from references supplied by participants of the April 9-11, 1999 "Conference on Status of Geologic Research and Mapping in Death Valley National Park" (see attached proceedings volume). References that are incomplete or seem to have errors are marked "reference incomplete" and should be used with caution. The list has not been heavily edited for consistency, nor has a substantial effort been made to cull or prioritize the list. However, it should serve as a great resource for those uninitiated in Death Valley geology. The compilers are greatly indebted to Blair Davenport (NPS), Mel Essington (NPS), Angela Jayko (USGS), and Chris Menges (USGS), each of whom supplied large source lists

Some of the references have been coded as to the subject matter using the following codes. These codes follow the references.

C Geochemistry
G Geophysics
H Hydrology
I Imagery/remote sensing
M Mapping (geologic)
N Neotectonics
Q Quaternary geology, geomorphology, paleoclimate
S Stratigraphy, paleontology
T Structure, tectonics
