area. This plan attempts to identify in more detail some of the qualities that make Pine Valley what it is, and recommendations are made for maintaining that quality while still allowing the valley to continue to grow and develop. TOPOGRAPHY, GEOLOGY, AND CLIMATE Pine Valley is set in the midst of the hills of the Pine Valley Mountains. Know that Yosemite Valley was a broad valley during the mid-Tertiary before uplift and tilting of the Sierra Nevada that started about 5 to 10 m. y. ago. As a result of the uplift, the rate of erosion increased, and in the early Quaternary before glaciation, the Valley moved into the “canyon stage” a V-shaped valley.

The structural geology of the four anthracite coal fields within the folded and faulted Valley and Ridge Province is much more complex than the relatively flat-laying strata of most of the bituminous coal fields within the Allegheny Plateau of western Pennsylvania, shown on . Eastern California boasts the greatest dryland relief in the contiguous United States, offering a rich variety of environments and spectacular geology. Illustrated with photographs, maps, and diagrams, Geology Underfoot in Death Valley and Owens Valley provides an on-the-ground look at the processes sculpting the terrain in this land of extremes for everyone interested in how .

Charles Butler Hunt was executive director of the American Geological Institute (), a professor of geography and environmental engineering at Johns Hopkins University (), and adjunct professor of earth science at New Mexico State University. Professor Hunt completed the notebooks of /5(6). Death Valley National Park show-cases the subtle beauty and uniqueness of desert environments. What events conspired to create Death Valley? Why is the landscape so varied, and so extreme? Badwater Basin contains the lowest point in North America, at feet below sea level, yet it lies in the afternoon shadow of 11,foot Telescope Peak.

Robert P. Sharp first visited Death Valley and Owens Valley as a child aroundand he continues to lead geology field trips to the are. Sharp is a professor emeritus at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena and received the /5(27). The book is somewhat technical and would be a great summary for those with a decent geology education and just want to learn about Death Valley.

The book does have a glossary but you will want to spend some time in front of a computer looking up some of the concepts anyway/5(9). The Pine Valley Mountains tower over feet above Silver Reef, reaching an elevation of just o feet. The mountains are eroded from a 20 million-year-old granitic rock.

If you want to see what these rocks look like, cast your eyes over the apron of sediment on which the town of Silver Reef is built.

The geology guide will begin with a geologic history of the PVRD (e.g., a description of the major rock units, fossils, structures, laccoliths, etc.) followed by rod logs that takes the visitor on self-guided tours of geologic features that can be seen, or even walked to, from the main roads that cross the PVRD.
