Utah Geological Association

Edited by: D. T. Griffen and W. R. Phillips

As the science of geology moves forward, it is important to give critical areas, such as the Beaver Dam Mountains, a re-examination. Recent thinking on extensional tectonics makes this publication and discussions so much more pertinent. If you are looking for detachment faults, they are here; if attenuated stratigraphy is your interest, then you came to the right place; if an overall review of the stratigraphy is your need, then welcome. The Beaver Dam Mountains hold all of these and more. The papers in this publication are listed below:
