Geology and stratigraphy of the Mount Bennett Hills, and the origin of west-central Snake River Plain rhyolites
Voluminous mid-Miocene (8-13 Ma) rhyolitic ash-flows and lava flows (Idavada volcanics) are exposed continuously along the northern (Mount Bennett Hills or MBH) and southern margins of the west-central Snake River Plain ...
Broadening theories of soils genesis: Insights from Tanzania and simple models
Three basic assumptions of soil formation are challenged herein: the degree of chemical weathering decreases with depth; increased physical weathering due to high topographical gradients causes an increase in chemical ...
Petrogenesis of late Cenozoic volcanic rocks from the Raton-Clayton volcanic field, northeastern New Mexico and southeastern Colorado
Late Cenozoic volcanism on the Great Plains in northeastern New Mexico was closely related to the tectonic and thermal deformation along the transitional zone between the Colorado Plateau and southern Basin and Range ...
A study of reactive transport phenomena in porous media
The numerical modeling of reactive transport in a porous medium has important applications in hydrology, the earth sciences and in numerous industrial processes. However, realistic simulations involving a large number of ...
Oblique collision and accretion of the Netherlands Leeward Antilles island arc: A structural analysis of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary zone
The Netherlands Leeward Antilles volcanic island arc is an ideal natural laboratory to study the evolution of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary. The Leeward Antilles islands (Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire) are ...
Major and trace element compositions and strontium, neodymium, and lead isotopic ratios of late Cenozoic mafic lavas from the northern Basin and Range
During the late Cenozoic mafic lavas were emplaced contemporaneously with Basin and Range extension near Battle Mountain, Nevada. They display wide ranges in major and trace elements contents and Sr, Nd, and Pb ratios. The ...
