I am looking for papers on the stratigraphy, geochronology and/or compositional make up of the Wastach Range and its formations. I prefer a broad overview paper and I can't seem to find one. Any help is appreciated.


This report on the stratigraphy is probably a good place to start.

Additonally, searching Google Scholar for Wasatch Range geochronology brings up a number of papers on the geochronology of specific formations if you are interested in that.

  • $\begingroup$ I did find that one! I was concerned that the naming conventions were outdated since I have done research on other mountain ranges and have seen that formations either got renamed, reclassified or split up into further units. If this isn't the case then I will start looking into that USGS paper. $\endgroup$ – WiscoBadger456 Jun 1 '18 at 17:21
