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...

Stream-gaging stations and publications relating to water sources, 1885-1913; Part IX: Colorado River basin

Investigation of water resources by the United States Geological Survey has consisted in large part of measurements of the volume of flow of streams and studies of the conditions affecting that flow, but it has comprised also investigation of such closely allied subjects as irrigation, water storage, water powers, underground waters, and quality...

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...
