Arches National Park. Bryce Canyon. Zion. When one thinks of Utah, it's rocks and iconic landforms—preserved in a nearly endless list of national parks and monuments—come immediately to mind. Perhaps more so than any other state, Utah is built for geologic exploration, and geologists/authors Felicie Williams, Lucy Chronic, and Halka Chronic are its expert tour guides.The Beehive State is splitting at the seams with wondrous geological contrast. Utah's high mountains, showcasing the results of what happens as the Earth bends, folds, and breaks itself apart, run like a backbone down the center of the state. To the east, the Colorado Plateau's flat-lying sedimentary rock is wondrously exposed in canyons, arches, and breaks. To the west is the immense Great Basin, a region characterized by rank upon rank of long, narrow, gaunt mountain ranges alternating with desert basins that are among the flattest surfaces on Earth.Roadside Geology of Utah's 65 road guides traverse the state's major thoroughfares as well as its dusty, sleepy, winding two-lane highways. With fresh prose and more than 300 color photos, maps, and figures to boot, you too will become expert at reading Utah's rocks.

A fascinating and accessible introduction to the principles of physical and historical geology. For the millions who visit them each year, U.S. national parklands offer a glittering spectacle of natural wonders. But beyond the spectacular scenery, these national treasures have a much bigger, more awe–inspiring tale to tell––a sprawling story of upheaval and transformation, involving forces and time–spans almost beyond imagining. The purpose of this book is to provide you with the knowledge you need to read and interpret that story, and to make visits to the parklands even more special. Requiring no prior familiarity with the geological sciences, this region–by–region exploration of the U.S. parklands teaches the principles of physical and historical geology by example. It begins with a general introduction to all important concepts, terms, and principles. In the chapters that follow, the authors take you on a tour through the geological regions of the United States. Beginning with Hawaii and the Pacific borderlands and moving progressively eastward to the Appalachian Mountains and the coastal plains of the East Coast, they provide you with a geologist′s–eye view of the landforms, mountains, and bodies of water encountered in over 70 national parks and monuments, and tell the fascinating story of their evolution. Lavishly illustrated with nearly 300 stunning photographs and maps and featuring greatly expanded coverage of the geological story, history, and culture of U.S. parks and monuments, this new edition of Dr. David Harris′s classic text is an ideal introduction to the principles of geology for students and nature enthusiasts alike.

Here is an excellent opportunity to learn about the volcanic events and landforms of the American West while hiking ten trails through its most scenic mountains. Hikes in New Mexico, Arizona, Wyoming, California, Oregon and Washington reveal the fury of past events and demonstrate the power of volcanic activity today. In this book and on the trails, geology and archaeology intersect to tell a tale of landforms rising from the earth and the ancient people's struggle to persist and adapt. Geologists have died studying volcanic eruptions. Native Americans wrote gods into their history while watching fire burst from the ground. Hiking these mountains turns exercise into awe and respect for the energy still building under these massive ranges. The author explores the most interesting landforms, with some trails to summit craters and others through the innards of decapitated volcanoes still standing as high mountains. For more than thirty years Tom Prisciantelli has driven the roads and hiked the trails of the American West. In his first book, "Spirit of the American Southwest," he explored along hiking trails the geology of the Southwest and the arrival of the Native American's ancestors. From that exercise he was fascinated by a particular chapter in the geology lesson he learned on the road: that dealing with volcanoes. His research for this book took him along that path. The author and his wife live in a solar-powered adobe home in northern New Mexico, in full view and respect for one of the volcanoes about which this book was written.

Das Ziel des Buches ist es, vor allem in der Deutschen Literatur auftretende Fachwörter aus der Geologie und ihren Grenzgebieten in möglichst umfassender, jedoch knapper Form zu erklären. Diese Grundkonz- tion verlangt eine sehr starke textliche Verdichtung, was sich vor allem bei den Texten der Sammelstichworte bemerkbar macht. Durch die Einführung dieser Erläuterungsmethode finden sich vielfach im Text Einzelsti- worte, die lediglich einen Hinweis auf die Erläuterung bei einem bestimmten Sammelstichwort aufweisen (z. B. : Axialgefälle? Querfaltung). Weiterhin wurde zur sinnvollen Verknüpfung von Stichwörtern im Text selber oder im Anschluss an ihn ein Hinweis auf verwandte Stichwörter gegeben (z. B. : bei ,Benthos‘, s. a. Nekton, Plankton). Weiterhin ist in der vorliegenden Auflage des Buches wieder – dem Wunsche zahlreicher Rezensenten folgend – in verstärktem Maße der Hinweis auf die jeweiligen Erstautoren der einzelnen Begriffe angebracht worden. Es ist hier zu beachten, dass die Signatur: (*L. MILCH, 1894) angeben soll, dass der genannte Autor diesen Begriff zum genannten Zeitpunkt in die wissenschaftliche Literatur eingeführt hat. Dabei wurde keine Rücksicht darauf genommen, ob der Begriff heute noch im gleichen Definitionssinne gebraucht wird. Vielfach gelang es trotz mühsamen Suchens nicht, den Erstautor zu entdecken (keine Angabe im Text oder – wenn möglich – der Vermerk: z. B. ,... schon bei C. F. NAUMANN, 1850‘), oder es blieb ungewiss, ob der Genannte wirklich der Erstautor gewesen ist (z. B. ,... wahrscheinlich A. G. WERNER‘ oder ,? *E. SUESS, 1883‘).
