Reconnaissance geology and geologic hazards of the Canon City Quadrangle. 2 plates (1:24,000). Digital PDF download. OF-83-04D

These two black and white maps were created as part of a Colorado School of Mines thesis project (thesis number T-2532) with support by the Colorado Geological Survey. Plate 1 presents the geology and Plate 2 the geologic hazards. Mapped hazards include landslides, rock fall areas, unstable to potentially unstable slopes, flood areas, alluvial/debris fan areas, erosive-soils areas, and swelling soils areas. Also included on this plate is a hazard matrix.
