Mono Lake (/ ˈ m oʊ n oʊ / MOH-noh) is a saline soda lake in Mono County, California, formed at least , years ago as a terminal lake in an endorheic lack of an outlet causes high levels of salts to accumulate in the lake. These salts also make the lake water alkaline.. This desert lake has an unusually productive ecosystem based on brine shrimp that thrive in its waters, and Location: Mono County, California.

Abstract. The square mile (1, square km) area around Gerlach and Hualapai Flat in northwestern Nevada includes Permo-Triassic metavolcanic and metasedimentary rocks disposed as roof pendants in Cretaceous granodiorite, Late Oligocene-Early Miocene rhyolitic, andesitic, and basaltic sequences, and Pliocene .) and Quaternary alluvial and lacustrine sediments.

Third sort field. Study sites are located in the northern extent of the Basin and Range province near Winnemucca, study sites occur on alluvial aprons late Pleistocene in age; the surface at one site is believed slightly older in age than other study sites but still late Pleistocene (Hawley and Wilson, ).Site elevations range from m to m above mean sea level on mostly southwest to Cited by:   Gilbert, G.K.

They are most widespread in the drier parts of the world but have been studied also in humid regions such as Japan, the Himalaya Mountains (Drew, ), and Canada (Winder, ), and in the Arctic regions (Hoppe and Ekman, ; Legget.

Abstract. Alluvial fans are semi-conical landforms composed of stream deposits and debris flow materials where a canyon exits a mountain range. Alluvial fans are built in semi-arid, humid-temperate, and proglacial regions (RachockiNilsen and Moore ), but they have been studied more in deserts than in any other environment (BullGraf ).Cited by: Pyramid and Winnemucca Lakes, Nevada.

The Winnemucca Site is interesting because it is not far from another Nevada site which has attracted the interest of rock art historians. This is the Grimes Point Site (Fig. 4) which contains random cupules that have undergone extreme erosion (Heizer and Baumhoff plate 1).

Publisher. Several prehistoric mammoths have been excavated in the Black Rock Desert area. Casts of the bones are on display at the Nevada State Museum in Carson City, Nevada and the Humboldt County Museum in Winnemucca.

Initially, there were reports that human artifacts had been found with the bones.The purpose of this paper is to present a new viewpoint of the Paleozoic and Mesozoic geologic history in Nevada using tectonic domains derived from the newly interpreted digital geologic map of Nevada (Crafford, ).The new map provides detailed descriptions of how each local rock unit or formation was grouped into a regional geologic by: 8.Phoenix, D.A.,Geology and Ground Water in the Meadow Valley Wash Drainage Area, Nevada, Above the Vicinity of Caliente, with Statements on Classification of Irrigable Lands in the Panaca Area of Meadow Valley, By George Hardman and H.G.
