Grand Canyon geology. [Stanley S Beus; Michael Morales;] -- This second edition of the leading book on Grand Canyon geology contains the most recent discoveries and interpretations of the origin and history of the canyon. It includes two entirely new.

    The Colorado River has carved the Grand Canyon into four plateaus of the Colorado Plateau Province. The Province is a large area in the Southwest characterized by nearly-horizontal sedimentary rocks lifted 5, to 13, feet above sea level. The Plateau’s arid climate produced many striking erosional forms, culminating in the Grand Canyon.

The Grand Canyon tells one of the world’s greatest geologic stories. Its distinctive features allow researchers to piece together the history of this unique location, one of America’s treasures and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Thinking of the geologic record as a book is helpful to understand each page of Earth’s history. Book Description: Note: The second edition of this book was published September You can find it here: Physical Geology - 2nd Edition. Physical Geology is a comprehensive introductory text on the physical aspects of geology, including rocks and minerals, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, glaciation, groundwater, streams, coasts, mass wasting, climate change, planetary geology and Author: Steven Earle.

The geology of the Grand Canyon area includes one of the most complete and studied sequences of rock on Earth. The nearly 40 major sedimentary rock layers exposed in the Grand Canyon and in the Grand Canyon National Park area range in age from about million to nearly 2 billion years old.

Most were deposited in warm, shallow seas and near ancient, long-gone sea shores in western North. Bring Grand Canyon home with books about hiking, Grand Canyon's trails, human history, and more.

When you shop with Grand Canyon Conservancy, your purchase matters protecting Grand Canyon for future generations. The top layer of the Grand Canyon, the Kaibab Limestone, contains many marine fossils which indicate that it originated at the bottom of the sea.

This layer is around million years old. Rock layers younger than million years have been eroded away and no longer exist in the immediate vicinity of the Grand Canyon. Informer Geologist-in-Park Stacy Timmons completed a Grand Canyon Geology Training Manual for Grand Canyon National Park.

The training manual was also part of the requirements for her Masters of Science in Geology that she completed at Oregon State University in under the supervision of Dr. Robert J Lillie. CHAPTER II.

The story begins almost two billion years ago with the formation of the igneous and metamorphic rocks of the inner gorge.

In geology, this is referred to as the principle of superposition, meaning rocks on the top are generally younger than rocks below them. In the second section, the concepts are applied to the geology of the Grand Canyon region, as the “language” of geology is used to read the “book” of Grand Canyon geology.

The final section is a small toolbox of interpretive tools intended to help you begin to effectively communicate the geologic history of Grand Canyon to park visitors. It is written in easy to understand format and parallels the educational level of PBS or the Discovery Channel.

I suggest everyone who visits Grand Canyon NP add this book to their library. For detailed geology there are more advanced books or you can visit the Grand Canyon Association web by: 4.
