In any case, this new map includes a snippet of surficial mapping that
I and others did a few years ago in the entirety of Ivanpah Valley,
Nevada…’The Ivanpaviathan‘ with some minor changes.
The big story here is the huge amount of work that the first author
did in creating the bedrock mapping. This is a complicated area to say

fair amount of new mapping, but really went the extra mile in
compiling diverse scraps and swaths of mapping created over the years
by the other authors. No small task.
Now, about that missing cross section…
Kudos also to Irene for converting what was initially a ‘symphony in mustards’ to this nice map.
