Recent or ongoing SCAMP investigations

The Southern California Areal Mapping Project (SCAMP) conducted geologic investigations in the Fawnskin 7.5' quadrangle as part of cooperative studies with the U.S. Forest Service to develop a geologic-map layer for the San Bernardino National Forest. Link to "Where is SCAMP working, San Bernardino National Forest" for a description of ongoing SCAMP investigations in other parts of the Forest.
