Stratigraphic Studies

By: J. R. Wilson, editor

This guidebook contains articles and road logs for field trips planned in conjunction with the 1992 meeting of the Rocky Mountain Section of the Geological Society of America held at Ogden, Utah. The field trip articles and road logs are arranged in the order in which they were numbered for the meeting. Most of the field trips have several technical articles addressing various aspects of the geology seen on the field trip and an effort was made to have each of these papers reviewed by one or more geologists with expertise in that area. Because of time constraints, not every paper was reviewed or edited as thoroughly as might have been desired, but this is somewhat unavoidable in a guidebook. Actually, authors were encouraged to discuss ideas that would generate discussion on the field trips and at subsequent symposia, therefore, some views expressed in the articles and road logs are backed by less evidence than might normally be found in a journal article.

With those caveats in mind, it should be noted that much of the information presented in these papers is new and not currently available in any other publication. In particular, the papers on structure and metamorphism in the eastern Great Basin, papers on structure and mineral deposits of the Oquirrh Mountains, papers on stratigraphy and structure in the Lakeside Mountains, and the papers on vertebrate paleontology will be of interest to many readers.
