MS-38 Geologic Map of the Glenwood Springs Quadrangle, Garfield County, Colorado


The Glenwood Springs quadrangle covers about 58 square miles in Garfield County, and includes the town of Glenwood Springs near the center of the quadrangle. This publication includes cross section; map unit correlation; shaded-relief map with geology overlay; and booklet of extended descriptions of map units, geologic setting, structural geology, economic geology, and references. Note that MS-38 is the digitally produced, full color version of the original black and white open-file report OF-95-03. However, this digital map and accompanying booklet were slightly modified from the original OF-95-03, incorporating (1) improved knowledge of the regional late Cenozoic evaporite collapse, (2) more recent results of detailed mapping of the Proterozoic, (3) edge matching the geology shown on the Basalt quadrangle with adjacent quadrangles and (4) interpretation of the geology of the mapped area with respect to the regional knowledge acquired by mapping contiguous quadrangles. 32 pages. 1 color plate (1:24,000).
