Crustal Models from the Salton Trough and Death Valley, California Regions

This is an integrated and comparative study of two California rifts. The available data make a comparative and integrated analysis worthwhile. Receiver functions, controlled source seismic, gravity, and magnetic data has been used to constrain crustal structure.

Integrated and Comparative Geophysical Studies of Crustal Structure of Pull-apart Basins: The Salton Trough and Death Valley, California Regions

This is an integrated and comparative study of two California rifts. The available data make a comparative and integrated analysis worthwhile. For this work we have used receiver functions, controlled source seismic, gravity and magnetic data to constrain crustal structure. Analysis of gravity data shows that the anomalies in the Salton Trough are deeper than anomalies of Death Valley.

Magnetic Dataset for North America

A cooperative effort between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico has produced a very nice magnetic map and database for North America. The main goal of our effort is to simply make these data available in a more convenient form.

Gravity Dataset for the United States Lower 48 states

The terrain corrected United States gravity database is available through the link below. The terrain corrections were calculated by Mike Webring of the U. S. Geological Survey using a digital elevation model and a technique based on the approach of Donald Plouff. The reduction of these data has been updated with modern geodetic datums and a higher precision digital elevation model. In the present version, latitude and longitude values are referenced to NAD83 (North American Datum 83; horizontal datum) and elevation values in meter are referenced to NGVD88 (Vertical datum).
