Late Devonian Alamo Impact, Southern Nevada: Analysis of Hematite Inclusions within Quartz Grains Kieri Hutchin B.S. Candidate Department of Geological Sciences San Diego State University Advisor Dr. Jared Morrow -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ABSTRACT The early Late Devonian (~382 Ma) Alamo event was produced by a marine bolide impact near the offshore margin of a large Paleozoic carbonate platform fringing western North America,...

Major and minor elemental analyses of distal channel deposits from the Late Devonian marine Alamo Impact Event Marck Maroun B.S. Candidate Department of Geological Sciences San Diego State University Advisor Dr. Jared Morrow -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ABSTRACT This study determined the geochemical signal—major and trace element composition as well as a potential extraterrestrial component, iridium—of distal, onshore channel...

Geologic Mapping and Petrochemical Stratigraphy of Southern Warner Valley, Southern Oregon, USA Michelle Dooley M.S. Candidate Department of Geological Sciences San Diego State University Advisor Dr. Vic Camp -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ABSTRACT The tectonomagmatic evolution of the northwestern margin of the Basin and Range Province is well expressed by the mafic-to-intermediate-to-silicic volcanic stratigraphy and structure of...

SDSU Geological Sciences Webinar - Kenneth S. Deffeyes

PEAK OIL AND THE GREAT RECESSION Kenneth S. Deffeyes Emeritus Prof. of Geology Princeton University In 2001, my first oil book predicted that world oil production would peak in the year 2005. The most recent data from the Energy Information Agency say that it happened! Even with the extreme spike in oil prices, the year 2008 produced less oil than 2005. Production for the first half of 2009 is even lower. The invisible hand of economics has become the invisible fist; pounding the...

Goodness-of-fit Criteria for Broadband Synthetic Seismograms, With Application to the 2008 Mw5.4 Chino Hills, CA, Earthquake: John Mayhew, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University, Advisor Dr. Kim Bak Olsen - We present a goodness-of-fit measure for broadband ground motion time histories. As is the case with the goodness-of-fit measure proposed by Anderson (2004), our method includes a set of user-weighted metrics such as peak ground motions, response...

Scenario-Based Seismic Loss Estimation for San Diego County, California: Loren Wimmer, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University, Advisor Dr. Steven Day - A study was done to estimate seismic losses to San Diego County, California, and test the sensitivity of those loss estimates to the choice of ground motion model. The scenario chosen was a magnitude 7.1 earthquake on the Rose Canyon Fault Zone. A rupture surface for this scenario was defined following...

Evaluation of XRD and Raman peak broadening in shock-metamorphosed carbonates from selected carbonate-target bolide impact structures: Kean Bliss, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University - Identification of shock metamorphism in minerals is an important line of evidence for confirming the origin of potential impact-generated structures and associated deposits. Unlike common quartz and feldspar occurring in crystalline target rocks, shock-metamorphosed...
