The geology of central Utah creates unparalleled educational opportunities. Curious amateurs to seasoned explorationists find understanding by observing the plethora of geologic features and the intertwined relationships between stratigraphy, structure, and volcanism. Indeed, geologists from around the world come to study central Utah's ancient deltas, wave-dominated marine shorelines, Laramide uplifts, and thrusted crustal blocks. Piecing together its depositional and tectonic histories has been an ongoing challenge for geologists and geophysicists for many decades. The serious geoscientist would do well to visit central Utah time and time again. This publication explores the geologic features found throughout the region. Listed below are the articles found in the publication:
