CitationCook, J.P., Pearthree, P.A., Onken, J.A. and Bigio, E.R., 2010, Mapping of Holocene River Alluvium along Oak Creek, Wet Beaver Creek, West Clear Creek, Fossil Creek, and the East Verde River, Central Arizona: Arizona Geological Survey Digital Map - River Map 03 (DM-RM-03), map scale 1:24,000.
DescriptionThe purpose of these investigations is to document and map the extent of Holocene channel and floodplain alluvium associated with five large tributaries to the Verde River in central Arizona. These tributaries are Oak Creek, Wet Beaver Creek, West Clear Creek, Fossil Creek, and the East Verde River. Mapping completed in this study may be used by Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) staff as part of their effort to delineate subflow zones in the Verde River Watershed. Geologic mapping is a primary function of the Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS), so in cooperation with ADWR staff we have established procedures and protocols for documenting and mapping the extent of Holocene floodplain alluvium along rivers in Arizona. This report and associated maps complete the second part of an effort to map Holocene channel and floodplain alluvium mapping along the Verde River corridor. In the first phase of this effort, we mapped Holocene river deposits along the Verde River (Cook et al., 2010). Together, this mapping effort includes over 370 miles of new and updated surficial geologic mapping along the Verde River, Oak Creek, Wet Beaver Creek, West Clear Creek, Fossil Creek, and the East Verde River.
