Most widely held works by Decade of North American Geology Project
Hydrogeology( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume discusses hydrogeology from the geological perspective. After describing the major features of 28 hydrogeologic regions of North America, the volume devotes eight chapters to discussion of the comparative hydrogeology of kinds of different bedrock regimes and surficial deposits; seven chapters to geologic processes including karstification, diagenesis, tectonics, ore deposits, and hydrocarbon migration intimately involved with ground water; and two concluding chapters to look at future scientific and societal problems related to ground water
Surface water hydrology( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides reviews of all major facets of hydrology. Topics covered include: influences of the atmosphere and of land and vegetation on stream flow; temporal and spatial variability of stream flow, with separate chapters on floods and on low flow and hydrologic drought; snow and ice, the frozen components of the hydrosphere; the hydrology of lakes and wetlands; hydrogeochemistry of rivers and lakes; the aquatic biota; sediment movement and storage; the riverscape for selected North American rivers; and the influence of Man on hydrologic systems
Sedimentary cover, North American Craton, U.S.( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'sedimentary cover' refers to the stratified rocks of youngest Proterozoic and Phanerozoic age that rest upon the largely crystalline basement rocks of the continental interior. This volume presents data and interpretations of the geophysics of the craton and summarizes the craton's tectonic evolution. It also presents the stratigraphy, structural history, and economic geology of specific sedimentary basins (e.g. Appalachian basin) and regions (e.g. Rocky Mountains). It concludes with a discussion of the currently popular theories of cratonal tectonics, & unresolved questions are identified
The Atlantic continental margin : U.S.( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This synthesis covers stratigraphy, depositional processes, and geophysical interpretation of the major onshore and offshore marginal basins from Maine to the Bahamas. It discusses the theoretical aspects of thermal evolution, subsidence, and seismic stratigraphy as applied to this region. Geological resources including petroleum, water, sand and gravel, hard minerals, and heat flow are reviewed, and environmental hazards such as seismicity, coastal erosion, waste disposal and submarine instability as it relates to site of drilling platforms and mining are evaluated
The Western North Atlantic region by Peter R Vogt( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The award-winning first volume in this 28-volume series. It provides complete coverage of the geology and geophysics of the western North Atlantic Ocean basin in 41 chapters, organized into 8 sections: Introduction; Present Accretion Axis; Regional Geology and Geophysics; Plate Tectonic Evolution; Surficial Sedimentation; Biofacies; Paleoceanography; and Resources and Law of the Sea. The editors received the 1986 Alan Berman Research Publication Award for this volume
The Heritage of engineering geology : the first hundred years( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A review of milestones and changes in geological theory and practice from which modern engineering geology in North America has developed. Subjects covered include: historical events and the contributions of early scientists and engineers; the state of knowledge of dominant geologic processes, phenomena, and specialized principles critical to modern practice; geologic environs and the properties of construction materials; geoscience investigations and related techniques; the geoscientist's responsibilities relative to engineering failures, and errors of judgment
Geology of Canadian mineral deposit types by Geological Survey of Canada( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this volume is to define and summarize in a brief and systematic manner the essential characteristics of all economically significant types of Canadian mineral deposits
Geology of the precambrian Superior and Grenville Provinces and precambrian fossils in North America( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains a description of the geology and mineral deposits of the Superior Province of the Canadian Shield, an overview of Grenville Province geology, and a synopsis of Precambrian fossil occurrences in North America. Six large plates include a geological map of Canada, geological map of the Grenville Province, lithotectonic map of the Superior Province, Archean mineral deposit map of the Superior Province, and more
Geology of the Cordilleran Orogen in Canada by Geological Survey of Canada( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seven stratigraphic chapters cover time slices from Precambrian to Neogene; also included are chapters covering tectonic framework, paleomagnetism, physiographic evolution, Quaternary glaciation, volcanic and plutonic regimes, metamorphism, structural styles, metallogeny, energy and ground resources, and natural hazards. A tectonic synthesis chapter and a summary of outstanding problems round out the volume
Phanerozoic evolution of North American continent-ocean transitions( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume present syntheses in twelve chapters of the tectonic evolution of continent-ocean transitions of North America since the Precambrian. The syntheses are interpretations based on the 19 continent-ocean transects across North American margins published by GSA as part of the Decade of North American Geology project
Geology of the Innuitian Orogen and Arctic Platform of Canada and Greenland by Geological Survey of Canada( Book )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1991 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume describes and interprets the geology of the northern margin of the North American continent in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and north Greenland. The book includes an account of the history of exploration of the Arctic; a survey of the geomorphic subdivisions; a summary of the tectonic framework; succinct accounts of the geophysical characteristics of the region; an overview of the geological history as recorded in the rocks; a discussion of resources; and a brief, interpretative summary of geological history and broader regional relationships
Sedimentary cover of the craton in Canada by Geological Survey of Canada( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The early chapters of the volume present data and interpretations of the geophysics of the craton and summarise, with sequential maps, the tectonic evolution of the craton. The main body of the text and accompanying plates and figures present the stratigraphy, structural history, and economic geology of specific sedimentary basins and regions. The volume concludes with a summary chapter in which the currently popular theories of cratonal tectonics are discussed and the unresolved questions are identified
