Inversion of Gravity Data to Define the Pre-Cenozoic Surface and Regional Structures Possibly Influencing Groundwater Flow in the Rainier Mesa Region, Nye County, Nevada
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2006_1299_1.0


Summary
Abstract: A three-dimensional inversion of gravity data from the Rainier Mesa area and
surrounding regions reveals a topographically complex pre-Cenozoic basement
surface. This model of the depth to pre-Cenozoic basement rocks is intended for
use in a 3D hydrogeologic model being constructed for the Rainier Mesa area.
Prior to this study, our knowledge of the depth to pre-Cenozoic basement rocks
was based ... View entire text
