The USGS Denver Spectroscopy Lab Web Logo, has some
symbolism. The logo is an image of some mountain tops.
We study geology throughout the solar system, so those
mountain tops could be on any planet or moon in our solar system.
The ridge line of the mointain tops forms an interesting pattern,
(above). That pattern is similar to the plot of a spectrum or
other scientific data (below).
The mountain tops in our logo are derived from the mountains in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
