Notes
At the time of this writing, this new map and cross sections represent the most current understanding of the stratigraphy, structure, and thermal gradients of the Valles caldera. The map and cross sections are a product of the cumulative research efforts of countless geologists over the past 40 years, in addition to several state and federal agencies. GM-79 is a compilation of several detailed geologic maps completed during the previous eight years from parts of the nine 7.5-min USGS topographic quadrangles that encompass the caldera. The map includes more than 150 map units that are described in detail, and also incorporates new geochronologic data and recent refinements to the stratigraphic nomenclature.
