    The Long Valley Groundwater Basin is an elongated north-south trending basin located at the western edge of the Basin and Range Geomorphic Province. The basin is bounded by Peavine Peak to the south, Mesozoic granitic rocks of the Diamond Mountains to the west, Peterson Mountains to the east, and Honey Lake Valley Basin to the north.

[George Wong; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Exploration for geothermal resources in the Basin and Range geomorphic province of the western United States is much akin to mineral resource exploration. In this region, potential geothermal resources are located at or near zones of intersection of normal faults, where fracture permeability permits deep circulation of meteoric water into high.

The purpose of this field trip is to examine the tectonic history of one of the planet's best-exposed intracontinental rifts, the Basin and Range province. The trip is run as a transect at the latitude of Las Vegas, Nevada, where the province is relatively narrow (about km measured east-west).

The project area is composed of three contiguous BLM Resource Areas, totalling million acres, in northwest Nevada and northeast California (Figs, i and ii). The Sonoma-Gerlach and Paradise-Denio Resource Areas in northwest Nevada together comprise the BLM's Winnemucca by: 1.

Year Published: Aeromagnetic map of Mountain Pass and vicinity, California and Nevada. Magnetic investigations of Mountain Pass and vicinity were begun as part of an effort to study regional crustal structures as an aid to understanding the geologic framework and mineral resources of.

Basin and Range Province Joshua tree (Yucca brevifolia) in the Basin and Range Province, Nevada, U.S. Amateria The northern half of the province is called the Great Basin (q. v.). The Sonoran Desert (q.v.) section extends into Sonora, Mexico, while the Salton Trough extends to the Gulf of California; the Salton Trough is a concave.

The Basin and Range Province is a vast physiographic region covering much of the inland Western United States and northwestern is defined by unique basin and range topography, characterized by abrupt changes in elevation, alternating between narrow faulted mountain chains and flat arid valleys or physiography of the province is the result of tectonic extension that.

Within the Basin and Range Region, basins typically range from 4, to 5, ft in elevation, with the mountain ranges climbing 3, to 5, ft above that. Death Valley, California is the lowest of the basins with a low elevation of ft.

Telescope Peak, in the Panamint Range just to the west of Death Valley, has an elevation of 11, Major Land Resource Area (MLRA) MLRA Geographic Database, version (entire U.S., zipped shapefile format, 27 MB).

The Basin and Range hydrogeologic province includes 45 ground-water basins and 56 watersheds. The boundary with the Sierra Nevada province is defined by ground-water basin and watershed boundaries that approximate geologic boundaries; only one watershed (Upper Owens hydrologic area) was divided between the two provinces.

This report on ground-water levels, springs and depth to ground water in the Basin and Range province of Nevada (see index map) was prepared as part of a program of the U.S.

Geological Survey to identify prospective regions for further study relative to isolation of high-level nuclear waste (Bedinger, Sargent, and Reed, ), utilizing program guidelines defined in Sargent and Bedinger ().

The project area includes segments of U.S. High State Ro and the Central Arizona Project Canal, and is contiguous to the south with the White Tanks Mountain piedmont area previously mapped by Field and Pearthree ().

(24 pages; 2 map sheets, map scale ,). The Basin and Range National Monument was created by Presidential Proclamation on J because of its unique geologic, natural, cultural, and scientific resources and values.

Take a virtual tour of Basin and Range National Monument cultural sites. Basin and Range National Monument is a national monument of the United States spanning approximatelyacres (1, sq mi; 2, km 2) of remote, undeveloped mountains and valleys in Lincoln and Nye counties in southeastern Nevada. It is described as "one of the emptiest spaces in a state famous for its emptiness."Location: Lincoln and Nye counties, Nevada, United States.

The Southern Basin and Range is an extension of the Basin and Range Province centered on Nevada and the Great Basin and extending from southern Oregon to western Texas, and into northwest Mexico.

Area:sq. (, sq. miles). Precipitation. The basin-and-range Tertiary sandstones are very shallow in many parts of the basin and contain fresh water, whereas the carbonates are locally fractured, making predictions of projected fluid paths difficult.

However, areas where Tertiary sandstones are deep and where the carbonates are minimally fractured may be potential sites for CO 2. David D. Blackwell's research works with 3, citations and 7, reads, including: Evaluation of the geothermal potential of the western Snake River Plain based on a deep corehole on the.
