This is a master index to Volumes 1-4 of Geology of the Grand Canyon: An Annotated Bibliography (Geological Society of America Microform Publications 13. i 17. 20. published in 1983. 1984. 1988. and 1990. respectively).
The index is divided into two secuons:
In addition to the four published volumes. a few additional references are also included in these indexes. The citations for these works can be found in Part III of the present volume, where full bibliographical data and annotations are provided. These citations will be formally included in the annotated bibliography of Grand Canyon geology when the next volume is pre ...... ed.
Each index follows the same format. Principal authors of publications are listed in CAPITAL LETTERS. Coauthors are listed with Initial Capital Letters only. Editors of works are indicated by the suffix (ed.), Authors of discussions and replies are indicated by an asterisk (*).

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.
