Gambling on Geology
By Rebecca Coffey, Discover, November 2010. The author focuses on various natural sites near Las Vegas, Nevada that demonstrate geology and plate tectonics. In the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, different geologic layers are displayed, exposed on the mountain sides. The Keystone Thrust fault displays a significant Cretaceous uplift. The Spring Mountains, formed during the Cretaceous period by massive slabs of seabed limestone, is also mentioned.

Geology, geochronology, and geochemistry of the Miocene--Pliocene Ancestral Cascades arc, northern Sierra Nevada, California and Nevada: The roles of the upper mantle, subducting slab, and the Sierra Nevada lithosphere.
By Brian Cousins, et al. In Geosphere, October 2008.
The assemblage of ca. 28-3 Ma volcanic rocks exposed in the Lake Tahoe-Reno region of the northern Sierra Nevada, United States, is interpreted to be part of the Ancestral Cascades volcanic arc. The volcanic rocks are commonly highly porphyritic, including abundant plagioclase with clinopyroxene, amphibole, and rare biotite, and range from basaltic andesite to dacite in composition.
What Is a Peer-Reviewed Article?
Peer Review is a process that journals use to ensure the articles they publish represent the best scholarship currently available. When an article is submitted to a peer reviewed journal, the editors send it out to other scholars in the same field (the author's peers) to get their opinion on the quality of the scholarship, its relevance to the field, its appropriateness for the journal, etc.
Publications that don't use peer review (Time, Cosmo, Salon) just rely on the judgement of the editors whether an article is up to snuff or not. That's why you can't count on them for solid, scientific scholarship. --University of Texas at Austin
