Profile surveys in the Colorado River basin in Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico

In connection with studies of the utilization of rivers the United States Geological Survey has from time to time made surveys and profiles of some of the more important streams of the country and published the results in its series of water-supply papers. In some parts of the country these surveys were made chiefly to determine the location of...

Colorado River and its utilization

The region traversed by the Colorado and its tributaries is for many reasons of intense interest to the people of the United States. Here was the home of that forgotten people of which there is almost no record except the hieroglyphics on the rocks, the ruins of their irrigation systems, and the cliff dwellings by which they are most widely known...

The Navajo country: A geographic and hydrographic reconnaissance of parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah

To my mind the period of direct contact with nature is the true "heroic age" of human history, an age in which heroic accomplishment and heroic endurance are parts of the daily routine. The activities of people on this stage of progress deserve a place among the cherished traditions of the human race. I believe also that the sanest missionary...

Progress report on stream measurement work carried on in cooperation with the United States Geological Survey: Section in Ninth biennial report of the State Engineer to the governor of Utah: 1913-1914

Utah, like other states in the arid region of the United States, points with just pride to her present and future agricultural developments. She proudly boasts, and no doubt justly too, that her fields of green vegetation are inexhaustible and always expanding, and with due vigilance and care on the part of her land holders these fields will bring...

Water analyses from the laboratory of the United States Geological Survey

This paper contains 203 water analyses, which were made in the chemical laboratory of the United States Geological Survey. Most of these analyses have been published elsewhere, but many of the original documents are out of print, and are therefore obtainable with difficulty. Furthermore, the form of statement given the analyses has varied from...
