Geology of the Grand Canyon
What began as an almost inconsequential mention of "the Big canon" in a geomorphological monograph completed by January, 1856 (Hitchcock, 1857), and followed by just two major publications during the next two decades, now is a publishing record of scores of titles each year. And within the hundreds of papers and monographs that have been produced, especially in the last few decades, there is a tremendous amount of data which can be extracted only by lengthy, sometimes laborious and serendipitous scanning and cross-referencing. About ten years ago, compilation of an annotated bibliography of Grand Canyon geology (including paleontology) was begun. The first volume was published as a Microform Publication of the Geological Society of America (Spamer, 1983). The purpose of this volume, beyond its immediate use as an index to published data, is to consolidate in one volume all the widely dispersed hard data that may be of value to researchers. By quoting the original legends and captions, and by supplementing them with comments or indications of the contents of the figure or table, the user should be able to determine just what items may be of interest to the research project at hand. The author wishes to stress, however, that this first attempt at such a compendium may not satisfy all the needs of various workers.
