Dolores Archaeological Program Technical Reports, DAP-050: Geology of the Dolores Project Area

Author(s): Frank C. Leonhardy; Vickie L. Clay

Year: 1982


Integrated geological studies for the Dolores Archaeological Program provide project wide descriptions of landforms, rock units, Quaternary sediments, soils, and drainage systems. Additionally, geological studies provide alternative chronological control for archaeological material recovery and climatic reconstructions.

During the 1979 field season preliminary geologic mapping of soils, landforms, bedrock, and drainage areas was completed. Archaeological stratigraphy was recorded and samples were taken for sedimentary analysis. The resulting data base provides a working baseline form which revisions and interpretations can be made with regards to settlement location, resource availability, and agricultural potentials .

Originally the information in this record was migrated into tDAR from the National Archaeological Database Reports Module (NADB-R) and updated. In 2015, as part of its effort to improve tDAR content, the Center for Digital Antiquity uploaded a copy of the document and further improved the record metadata.
