... outcrops of the Truckee Formation exposed in the southeastern Virginia Range of Lyons and Churchill counties. It is the first biostratigraphically datable fauna from the upper member of the formation and consists of the following taxa: Lepoides cf. lepoides; Hypolagus ringoldensis; Hypolagus tedfordi...

... geotechnical problems or hazards. Foundation problems related to expansive soils are mainly due to the hydrothermal alteration of andesites of the Alta Formation and surface weathering of other volcanic rocks. Floodplain and lacustrine deposits in the Truckee basin are composed of clayey silts, silty sands...

... Formation in Wyoming, the Truckee Diatomite in Nevada, and the Ogallala Group in South Dakota. Phytoliths were found in all but the Green River and Truckee, being especially common near the base of the Flagstaff and in several beds of the Ogallala. This survey suggests that phytoliths can be useful...

... that formed along the lower Truckee River in western Nevada in response to net lake-level lowering at Pyramid Lake to document processes of terrace formation. These terraces, formed by the upstream migration of headcuts and lateral planation ( Born and Ritter, 1970 ), extend ∼15 km upstream from the lake...

... columnar basalt of unit Qb 1 within the Truckee River Canyon ( Fig. 2 ). Damming of the river at Rampart and the ensuing filling of the lake during this eruptive cycle resulted in the formation of lava delta deposits from 1902 to 2048 m elevation. Hence Rampart was the outlet of Proto-Tahoe within...
