Geologists honor their colleague Dickinson (1931-2015) with studies of plate tectonics and petro-tectonic assemblages, Oregon and California paleotechtonics, the North American Cordillera, and sedimentary basins of the world. Among their topics are the provenance and alteration of feldspathic and quartzose sediments in southern Mexico: an application of Krynine's hypothesis on second-cycle arkose, the paleomagnetism and rotation history of the Blue Mountains in Oregon, Late Cenozoic uplift and shortening in the central California Coast Ranges and the development of the San Joaquin Basin foreland, local-to-distance provenance cyclicity of the southern Front Range in central Colorado: insights from detrial zircon geochronology, and Cenozoic basin evolution in the Indus-Yarlung suture zone and High Himalaya.
