This is the narrative or notes to accompany the Power Point slide show: Geologic Hazards in the Early Tertiary Sediments of the Sierra Nevada Foothills of California
The complete slide sets and slide notes for two oral presentations discussing the mineralogy and petrology of the auriferous gravels and their downstream equivalents are now posted in the documents section.
Two oral and two poster session presentations made at the 2013 Cordilleran GSA Conference are available to view or download. These are papers that focus on the nature of the Early Tertiary fluvial sediments and their role in geotechnical issues in the Sierra foothills and adjacent Sacramento Valley areas.
The California Geological Survey’s Geohazard Notice for Smectite Sediments in the Sierra Foothills and adjacent Sacramento Valley areas is now available in the Documents section.
