This study developed a comprehensive, unified stratigraphy for the Quaternary, Cenozoic, and Mesozoic rocks of the Reno urban area that can be extended to adjacent areas. The study also completely remapped Quaternary and older faults in the area based on extensive new surface and subsurface data. Six new cross sections are the first to depict the overall structure of the Truckee Meadows basin. The maps are compiled in ArcGIS so that they can be continuously updated as additional data become available.
