Possible relationship of the Iron Mountain metavolcanic assemblage to the El Cajon Mtn ring complex, San Diego Country, California: Justin Kerl, B.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University - The Cretaceous Santiago Peak Volcanics are exposed along the western edge of the Peninsular Ranges batholith(PRB) and are interpreted as the volcanic cover of the batholitic intrusions. Ring dikes are also a common feature in the western PRB and were first described...

Petrology of the Santiago Peak Volcanics, San Diego County, California: Jerehme Acosta, B.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University - The Santiago Peak Volcanics (SPV) is exposed discontinuously in a belt along the western side of the Peninsular Ranges batholith in southern and Baja California. The SPV is intruded by ~125-100 Ma intrusions of the batholith and unconformably overlain by Late Cretaceous forearc basin strata of the Rosario Group. The SPV has...

The Recent Prehistoric Geochemical Evolution of Summit Lavas From Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii: Dale Burns, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University - Lavas from Kilauea Volcano display rapid geochemical and isotopic variations (e.g., 206Pb/204Pb or Nb/Y ratios) on a time scale of decades to centuries. The wall of Kilauea Caldera at Uwekahuna Bluff exposes a sequence of recent prehistoric, caldera-filling lavas (erupted mostly between AD 900-1400). Here we...

Stratigraphy and structure of the Miocene Bear Canyon Conglomerate, Imperial County SE California: Evidence for the episodic growth of the Chocolate Mountains anticlinorium: Krista Muela, B.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University - Between Indian Pass and Picacho State Recreation Area crystalline basement is overlain by early Miocene (~23 Ma) volcanic rocks. These units are in turn unconformably overlain by undated alluvial sedimentary rocks of the...

Chemical and Physical Characteristics of Pulverized Tejon Lookout Granite Adjacent to the San Andreas and Garlock Faults: Implications for Earthquake Physics: Matthew Sisk, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University - We present new detailed analysis of pulverized Tejon Lookout granite from sections adjacent to the San Andreas and Garlock faults in southern California. The granite is pulverized in all exposures within about 100 m from both faults....

TIR spectroscopy of shocked Deccan basalt: Implications for Mars and Martian meteorites: Shawn Wright, Institute of Meteoritics, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, University of New Mexico - Hundreds of thousands of impact craters dominate the surfaces of the Moon, Mercury, and Mars. There exists much geomorphic and spectral evidence for basalt on those surfaces, so basaltic target rocks are most likely common. However, little work has been done on the thermal infrared (TIR)...
