Relationship between structure and mineralogy of the Sherman granite, southern part of the Laramie Range, Wyoming-Colorado / Взаимоотношения между структурами и минералогией гранитов Шерман, южная часть хребта Ларамье, Вайоминг-Колорадо

Recent quantitative studies of gneisses in the Laramie Range by Newhouse and Hagner (1947) have resulted in the idea that structure of the host rock is a dominant factor controlling the composition of gneisses and schists. The Sherman granite, which is exposed in the southern part of the Laramie Range (Fig. 1), was selected for a quantitative study for three reasons: (1) a similar study had been made by Newhouse and Hagner on associated gneissic rocks which made it possible to correlate and compare results; {'d) most of the geologic contacts were mapioed previously, and thus nearly all of the field time could be devoted to a study of the granite; and (3) the area is of batholithic dimensions and is readily accessible. The problem was to determine whether any relationship existed between structure and composition of the granite, to explain the significance of any correlation or lack of correlation discovered, and to determine the relation of the Sherman granite to the Raggedtop gneisses studied by Newhouse and Hagner. <...>

Biodiversity Response to Climate Change in the Middle Pleistocene The Porcupine Cave Fauna from Colorado /  Реакция биоразнообразия на изменение климата в среднем плейстоцене. Пещерная дикая фауна из Колорадо

Since fossil vertebrates were first discovered at Porcupine Cave on the rim of South Park, Colorado, in 1981, the site has become the world’s most important source of information about animals that lived in the high elevations of North America in the middle part of the ice ages, between approximately one million and 600,000 years ago. Beginning in 1985, teams of scientists and volunteers from three major research institutions —the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and the University of California Museum of Paleontology—spent some 15 field seasons excavating and studying tens of thousands of fossil specimens that have opened a window onto past evolutionary and ecological adjustments. This window into the past allows us to visualize how ongoing global change could affect our living communities. This book reports the results of nearly two decades of research and has been written to appeal to three overlapping audiences
