Stratigraphy and tectonic setting of the Lower Cretaceous King Lear Formation, Jackson Mountains, northwest Nevada
The lower Cretaceous King Lear Formation (KLF) is a gently east-dipping succession of alluvial conglomerates and sandstones that were deposited in a small intra-arc basin. Supracrustal strata of Cretaceous age from within ...
Retreat history of the last glacial maximum ice sheet in Ross Sea, Antarctica
High-resolution geophysical and geologic data were acquired in western and central Ross Sea, Antarctica, to determine the: (1) maximum extent and configuration of the ice sheet during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM); (2) ...
Infrared spectroscopy of Mars
When measured with sufficient spectral range, resolution, and signal-to-noise ratio, nearly every mineral has a unique infrared spectral signature. However, determining which minerals are present on Mars using infrared ...
Late Quaternary marine deposits, offshore central Texas: Processes controlling geometry, distribution, and preservation potential
The interplay of sediment supply, accommodation space, and the rate of sea-level rise and fall, determine the thickness and overall extent of offshore deposits along the central Texas shelf. Analysis of near-shore sediment ...
Sedimentary facies and evolution of Late Pleistocene to recent coastal lithosomes on the east Texas shelf
Examination of Late Pleistocene to recent coastal lithosomes on the east Texas continental shelf can help refine current models aimed at understanding how coastal environments respond to a variety of forcing mechanisms ...
The Caribbean carbonate crash at the middle to late Miocene transition and the establishment of the modern global thermohaline circulation
The Caribbean carbonate crash was a time of increased regional carbonate dissolution at the middle to late Miocene transition. It is marked by five dissolution episodes, occurring from 12-10 Ma, characterized by significant ...
