6. Credits and Bibliography

This set of website pages were composed by Dick Henderson, with extensive editorial comments and corrections made by Norm Meader. The Geology Walks described elsewhere in these pages (led by Norm and by Bob Scarborough) provided the foundation for building a coherent picture, and both Norm & Bob provided many diagrams for illustration.

Some important sources are listed below. The color-coded maps provided by Goodlin and Mark 1985 were indispensable, and provided the bases for major features of the attached maps. Photocopies of them can be examined by contacting Dick or Tom Orum (see Contact Us). Anyone interested in problems of the geology of our area should contact Norm Meader, a professional geologist well acquainted with the San Pedro Basin.
