View looking upstream on the Colorado River at the mouth of the tributary Paria River (center). The sediment-laden water of the Paria River enters and mixes with the clear Colorado River water released from Glen Canyon Dam ( ). The Sacramento Basin, which occupies the north half of the Great Valley of California, is an elongate, northwest-trending structural trough. The trough is filled with as much as 40, ft of Jurassic to Holocene, marine and nonmarine siliciclastic rocks deposited in a convergent margin between late Mesozoic and early Cenozoic Size: KB. Geology and Tectonics of the Southwestern Sacramento Valley and Adjacent Coast Ranges: Sacramento Valley: E. M. Moores, Editor: Download: Field Guide to the Geology of Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve: East Bay: Volume 8 of 26 focuses on basin analysis, global sedimentary geology and sedimentology. All articles in the proceedings have been refereed and keynote papers have been included in Volume 1. These proceedings aim to present a view of contemporary geology and should be of interest to researchers in the geological sciences.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has undertaken a mineral resources assessment for tungsten for a portion of the Great Basin in parts of western Nevada and east-central California. This data release provides the Great Basin Tungsten Database: the geospatial and geologic data, and results of chemical analyses samples collected in the. Sedimentary basin analysis is a geologic method by which the history of a sedimentary basin is revealed, by analyzing the sediment fill itself. Aspects of the sediment, namely its composition, primary structures, and internal architecture, can be synthesized into a history of the basin fill.

In the guide- book, approximately 80 pages of geologic road logs provide specific geologic details for many of the roads in the Sacramento Mountains escarpment. In the present report, the focus is almost entirely on the geologic features and the geologic maps of the western escarpment of the Sacramento Mountains.   Geographical setting. The landward margin of the basin has three distinct physiographic elements: on the west are the mountains and plateaux of the Cordillera, with a narrow coastal plain, the centrally located Mackenzie Delta, and the lowlands of Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula and Anderson Plain on the east ().Most of the basin underlies the shelf and slope of the Beaufort Sea. Turbidite reservoirs in forearc basins produce from the Upper Cretaceous-Eocene strata of the Sacramento Basin (California) and from the Tertiary basins of Peru, Ecuador, and northern California. Forearc basin turbidites tend to be gas-prone because of .
