GSA Special Paper 365.

This special volume contains 15 articles honoring the contributions of Perry Ehlig to understanding the geology of the western United States. The articles are grouped into two thematic sections, reflecting Ehlig¹s twin research interests - the paleotectonics of the North American Cordillera and the neotectonic evolution of southern California. The first section contains seven reports summarizing recent research results on the application of geologic mapping, stratigraphic and structural analysis, and geochronology to problems of the Neoproterozoic to early Tertiary tectonic evolution of the Cordillera in the United States and northern Sonora. The second section contains eight reports that summarize state-of-the-art investigations of Miocene to Recent rocks, structures, geomorphology, and geochronology that yield insights into the ongoing tectonic evolution of southern California.
