The Muenster Uplift of North Texas: The Easternmost Expression of the Pennsylvanian Ancestral Rockies
The Muenster Uplift is a positive structural feature characterized by NW-SE trending reverse faults extending ~300 km (200 miles) in the subsurface from the Wichita Uplift in southwestern Oklahoma to the Ouachita fold and ...
Extensional and Accretionary Tectonics of Western North America: Examples from the Southern Walker Lane and Northwestern Washington State
In this work, I combine two studies which examine tectonics within the western North American Cordillera. The first study focuses on transtensional tectonics and displacement transfer within the eastern California shear ...
Gravity Analysis to Determine Geometry of Superposed Low-Angle Detachment and High-Angle Faults in the Western Silver Peak Range and Northern Fish Lake Valley, Nevada
Structures within the northern Eastern California shear zone (ECSZ) and central Walker Lane (CWL) are misaligned and have been kinematically linked since the mid-Miocene by a series of structural stepovers. Northwest ...
Strain Implications for the Formation of Clastic Dikes During Synextensional Deposition of Miocene Volcanoclastic Rocks in the Volcanic Hills, Southwest Nevada
The Eastern California Shear Zone (ECSZ) and the Central Walker Lane (CWL) constitute a tectonic boundary zone that accommodates differential displacement between the Sierra Nevada and the central Great Basin. The ECSZ ...
Late Cenozoic Displacement Transfer Analysis Within Deep Springs Valley, Eastern California With Gravity Modeling
The northern segment of the Eastern California Shear Zone (ECSZ) is characterized by rightlateral transtension accommodated on a network of north-northwest and northwest striking dextral transcurrent faults connected by ...
