Late Cenozoic High-Angle Transtensional and Low-Angle Detachment Faults in the Eastern Mina Deflection, West-Central Nevada
The region in west-central Nevada underlain by the Mina deflection, a belt of curved east-northeast and north-northwest high-angle faults linking the Eastern California Shear Zone and southern Walker Lane to the central ...
Geophysical Investigations of Southern Fish Lake Valley, Western Great Basin, California
Growth of the Cucomungo Canyon restraining bend along the Fish Lake Valley-Furnace Creek fault zone has resulted in localized uplift at the southern end of Fish Lake Valley in eastern California. This thesis is part of ...
Late Oligocene to Early Miocene North-South Extension in the Western Great Basin
In the central and southern Walker Lane, a network of six east-northeast east-west, and westnorthwest trending half-grabens, spanning an area of 15,000 km2, controlled the spatial distribution and thickness of late Oligocene ...
Three-Dimensional Heat and Mass Balance Modelling of Basin and Range Geothermal Systems Initiated by Opening of Structurally Controlled Conduits
The Basin and Range province of the Western US hosts numerous geothermal systems with observed temperatures > 200 – 285 °C at 2-3 km depth, most of which were blind discoveries with no known magmatic heat source. At the ...
