Non-Carbonate Deposits of Carlsbad Caverns
John M. Good


Carlsbad Caverns is an attraction to both the tourist and the scientist. In addition to its size it contains numerous speleothems and earth fills that present intriguing problems to the scientist. John M. Good, a member of the National Park Service, was stationed at Carlsbad Caverns for several years before his assignment to Lake Mead and his present assignment at Dinosaur National Monument. During his stay at Carlsbad Mr. Good made detailed examination of the geology of the cavern and had the opportunity of discussing his observations with many visiting scientists. His observations on fills and related features are presented in this paper.
