Abstract : Gravity data from Delamar Valley and Pahroc Valley were studied together for the purpose of making a geological interpretation which includes estimates of the overall shape of the structural basin, the thickness of alluvial fill, and the location of concealed faults. The estimates will be useful in modeling the dynamic response of ground motion in the basin and in evaluating groundwater resources. Gravity data and interpretation covering the part of Pahroc Valley referred to as 'Eastern Pahroc Valley' (that part east of South Pahroc Range) in our verification report (Ertcc, 198 lb) are included in this report.
