This paper explores the geostatistical relationship between volcanic and plutonic rock on Battle Mountain, one of the northernmost units of the Robertson River Igneous Suite in central Virginia (U.S.A.), in an effort to reconstruct the original appearance of the formation after rift volcanism at 704 Ma. This Neoproterozoic anorogenic formation dates from the initial rifting of the supercontinent Rodinia and may be one of the oldest intact visible volcanic formations in Virginia. This paper… 


Explosive rhyolitic volcanism in the Jemez Mountains: Vent locations, caldera development and relation to regional structure
The Jemez volcanic field straddles the western margin of the Rio Grande rift where the rift is intersected by the Jemez lineament in north central New Mexico. The field has a record of volcanism
Appalachian salients and recesses: Late Precambrian continental breakup and the opening of the Iapetus Ocean
Appalachian salients (convex toward the craton) and recesses (concave toward the craton) are inherited from the initial breakup of a continental mass by the intersection of rift valleys radiating
Chapter 1 The geological record of Neoproterozoic ice ages
The IUGS- and UNESCO-funded International Geoscience Programme Project #512 (Neoproterozoic Ice Ages) was conceived to contribute towards a global synthesis of current geological data on the number,

Structural characteristics of the Late Proterozoic (post-Grenville) continental margin of the Laurentian craton
Distribution and orientation data of 2676 segments of 2119 Late Proterozoic to Early Cambrian felsic and mafic dikes were compared with other Late Proterozoic to Early Cambrian features associated
Extensional and contractional deformation in the Blue Ridge Province, Virginia
Basement rocks of the Blue Ridge anticlinorium in central and northern Virginia were involved in two temporally distinct deformation episodes. The older event is characterized by a locally pervasive
Gallium and germanium geochemistry during magmatic fractionation and post-magmatic alteration in different types of granitoids: a case study from the Bohemian Massif (Czech Republic)
Abstract Contents of Ga and Ge in granites, rhyolites, orthogneisses and greisens of different geochemical types from the Bohemian Massif were studied using inductively coupled plasma mass
Knowledge Recovery for Continental-Scale Mineral Exploration by Neural Networks
The approach demonstrates how neural networks can be used efficiently in a practical problem of mineral exploration, where general domain knowledge alone is insufficient to satisfactorily model the potential controls on deposit formation using the available information in continent-scale information systems.
