In the course of a geologic study of granitic and metamorphic rocks of an extensive area of the southern Sierra Nevada, California (north to 36 00' N), more than granitic samples have been collected.

California: Name: Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 3 (Sierra Nevada, Death Valley area, Northern Mojave Desert and Transverse Ranges) Geologic age: Permian.

Granitic Rocks As seen on the geologic map, granitic rocks are widely exposed in the core of the Sierra Nevada. These rocks are typically light-colored, granular, and coarse-grained. They consist of a mixture of quartz, plagioclase feldspar, and potassium feldspar, with lesser amounts of biotite, hornblende, and other Size: KB.

The Golden Trout Volcanic Field (GTVF) produced the only Quaternary eruptions of mafic magma within the southern Sierra Nevada block. Approximately 38 × 10 6 m 3 of basalt, trachy-basalt, basaltic trachy-andesite, and basaltic andesite (–% SiO 2, –% K 2 O, and –% MgO) was erupted from four vents within a ~ 10 km 2 portion of the GTVF, which also includes rhyolite Cited by: 2.

Biotites from plutonic recks of the central Sierra Nevada and Inyo Mountains, California, have been examined and characterized by powder X-ray diffraction and optical and chemical methods.

Compositions of the biotites define a trend in the compositional triangle Fe+3 Fe+ by: The Sierra Nevada of California displays an isostatic gravity anomaly of +35 mGal over the western foothills and mGal at the crest of the range. A flexural isostatic model designed to explain the rapid Neogene uplift of the Sierra Nevada is consistent with these observations.

The upper crustal velocities correspond to metamorphic rocks and serpentinites of the Foothills Metamorphic Belt as well as to diorites and granodiorites of the Sierra Nevada batholith, while the.

This book is basically a field guide to the geology of the Sierra Nevada mountains. There is lots of information about rock types and where they are found, and many excellent color photos. There is also a very good description of the history of the geology of the Sierra Nevada and California, how they were formed by tectonic by: Crystalline rocks of the southernmost Sierra Nevada north of the Garlock fault consist primarily of Early Cretaceous orthogneisses with subordinate paragneiss, and a mid-Cretaceous tonalite batholith complex with coeval gabbroic intrusives.

Quartz-rich metasedimentary rocks and marble constitute the main framework into which the plutonic rocks were emplaced. rock and water from volcanic rock in the Sierra Nevada than between water from granitic rock in the Sierra Nevada and water from granitic rock in the Mohave Desert or along the California coast.

Magma from under the surface is slowly pushed up from deep within the earth into any cracks or spaces it can find, sometimes pushing existing country rock out of the way, a process that can take millions of years.

THE SIERRA NEVADA is the longest, highest, and most spectacular mountain range in the “lower 48” (fig. It is a mighty mountain range, tall and long, with spectacular canyons, world-famous waterfalls, and precipitous peaks.

The Sierra Nevada Batholith is a large batholith which forms the core of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California, exposed at the surface as granite. The batholith is composed of many individual masses of rock called plutons, which formed deep underground during separate episodes of magma intrusion, millions of years before the Sierra itself first began to rise.

Very little may grow in the granite in the Sierra Nevada, but that doesn’t mean the rock isn’t essential to life in the mountain range, according to a study funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Radiometric dating of granitic rocks in the central and southern Sierra Nevada indicates that the axis of plutonism migrated eastward at ∼ km/m.y. from to 85 Ma. This rate was independently measured for two traverses km apart (Chen and Moore, ). This rate defines the eastward movement of active granite making in the upper Cited by: Regional sets of steeply dipping joints and faults are common throughout the Sierra Nevada batholith, yet relatively little is known about how or when they formed.
