Cenozoic geology of the Chetoh country, Arizona and New Mexico by Paul W. Howell Download PDF EPUB FB2

It is hoped that this Arizona and New Mexico book, though it has not deciphered the Plateau's history, has at least produced some much needed basic data concerning it. The Chetoh country,of Arizona and New Mexico was chosen for the study because as far as the writer knows, it contains the most complete record of the late Cenozoic geology of the Plateau.

Eighteen chapters deal with the entire Gulf of Mexico basin. Included are significant contributions from Mexican geologists.

Nine topical chapters cover regional aspects of physiography and bathymetry, structural framework, the basement crust, salt tectonics and listric faulting, igneous activity, seismic stratigraphy, oil and gas resources, mineral resources and geopressured-geothermal energy.

The Death Valley region, of southeast California and southwest Nevada, is distinct relative to adjacent regions in its structural style and resulting topography, as well as in the timing of basin-range extension.

Cenozoic basin-fill strata, ranging in age from greater than or equal to 40 to approximately 2 million years are common within mountain-range uplifts in this region.

Available from New Mexico Bureau of Mines & Mineral Resources, Socorro, NM Price $ Investigations in Trans-Pecos Texas, New Mexico, south-east Arizona and adjacent parts of northern Mexico in the two decades prior to World War II resulted in a series of classic papers that dealt in part with Cenozoic rocks and geomorphic features.

Among these were publications by C. Baker (, ), D. Brand (), Kirk Bryan. Primarily, northern Mexico can be divided into four physiographic provinces; each with their own unique geology. The Copper Canyon area lies within the Sierra Madre Occidental province. Even though the area contains canyons deeper than the Grand Canyon, it has a limited geologic history of only a few tens of millions of years (versus over a.

Abstract. A regional synthesis of new and existing geologic and thermochronologic data document late Cretaceous - early Cenozoic regional erosion, Oligocene - Miocene volcanism, and subsequent late Miocene extension of the Basin and Range Province in northwestern Nevada and northeastern California.The uplifted area is probably a southeastern branch or extension of the Pedernal uplift of central New Mexico (fig.

3). Within the report area, uplift was apparently greatest in the north. Most of the uplift probably took place beneath seas that had advanced over the area early in Pennsylvanian time and that had fluctuated in depth.The principal deep crustal rock types found at the La Olivina xenolith locality in southeastern Chihuahua, Mexico, are mafic granulites, paragneisses, and intermediate‐ to silicic‐composition orthogn Cited by:
