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

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 586 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 539 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. by L. L Sloss( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 514 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 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Boulder, Colo. : Geological Society of America, 1988
The Western North Atlantic region by Peter R Vogt( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 500 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
Economic geology--U.S.( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume includes sections on mineral deposits (7 chapters on metals and 4 on industrial minerals); oil and gas (3 chapters on principles and 12 synthesizing major oil and gas basins); and coal (3 chapters on principles and 5 synthesizing major coal provinces, including Alaska). Six large plates summarize the distribution of all resources discussed in the text, two more plates compare cross-sections of major oil and gas basins at a common horizontal and vertical scale, and another shows a major reconstruction of a Pennsylvanian coal swamp
The Heritage of engineering geology : the first hundred years( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 457 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( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 443 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 by M. R St-Onge( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents three major contributions on aspects of Precambrian geology in North America. The first presents a comprehensive overview of the Archean Superior Province and its mineral resources to early 1995. It summarizes the major lithological and structural associations that comprise the province along with their inferred tectonic significance and that of the mineral deposits contained in each association. The major types of deposits are described in terms of their key geological affiliations and district-scale geological settings. Regional geology of the tectonic sub-provinces and their internal domains are reviewed and related to the time-space distribution of the deposits that they contain. Finally, the tectonic and metallogenic history of the Province is summarized and the numerous interpretations that have been put forward are discussed in light of current knowledge. The second contribution covers the Grenville Province (Mesoproterozoic) and its stratigraphic correlations, lithology, metamorphism, structure, geologic history, and tectonic models and their interpretations. The final contribution provides a general, current overview of the Precambrian fossil occurrences in North America and their stratigraphic distribution. Includes index
Phanerozoic evolution of North American continent-ocean transitions( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 387 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 Cordilleran Orogen in Canada( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geology of the Innuitian Orogen and Arctic Platform of Canada and Greenland( Book )

Sedimentary cover of the craton in Canada by Geological Survey of Canada( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
