I have been senior or junior author of about 200 published refereed geologic reports and maps and more than 50 published abstracts. Publications and other details about my career before my USGS retirement in mid-2000 are given in my USGS “Research Scientist Record,” which is available in hard copy or as a digital attachment upon request. It lists 177 published reports and 43 published abstracts up until January 2000, when it was last updated. Some of the more noteworthy of these are given below. My most recent publications are given in the next section.
