Rio Grande Basins

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

The project prepares geologic maps and topical reports on the geology of the Rio Grande Rift from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to central Colorado.  A major focus is on the volcanic and tectonic history of the rift, a region of extension that has been active since about 30 million years ago.  The mapping is aided by the use of light detection and ranging (lidar) imagery and aerial photography.
