Abstract

Welcome to this conference on the “Status of Geologic Research and Mapping in Death Valley National Park.” We organized this conference in an effort to foster communication and increase awareness among parties conducting geologic research in and around the park. Additionally, we hope to assess the status of geologic mapping efforts within the park boundaries in an effort to provide a framework for future discussions regarding the impact and merits of the development of a park-wide geologic map. The topics presented at this meeting reflect the breadth of recent and ongoing geologic research in and near Death Valley National Park. Sessions include (1) regional structure, tectonics, and bedrock geology; (2) Neogene basin stratigraphy, geophysics, and hydrology; (3) posters on mapping in the Death Valley region and topical ones on Death Valley National Park; (4) imagery, Quaternary stratigraphy and geomorphology, and Quaternary geochronology; and (5) paleoclimate and active tectonics. On a one-day field trip to Death Valley, we will visit areas of “type locality” status as well as areas of new research.
