DescriptionThe Daisy Mountain Quadrangle, located along the northernmost fringe of the Phoenix metropolitan area, straddles the physiographic boundary between the Basin and Range and Transition Zone (Figure 1). The quadrangle lies between 1-17 and Cave Creek and is bordered on the south by the northwestern end of Paradise Valley and rugged, high-relief terrain of the New River Mountains to the north. The Daisy Mountain Quadrangle includes the community of New River, which is undergoing rapid population growth and is becoming increasingly urbanized. Thus, the knowledge of the distribution and character of bedrock and surficial deposits is important to make informed decisions concerning management of the land and its resources. This project was funded by the Environmental Protection Agency through the State Indoor Radon Grant Program, and the Arizona Geological Survey.
