Contemporary strain rates in the northern Basin and Range province from GPS data
We investigate the distribution of active deformation in the northern Basin and Range province using data from continuous GPS (CGPS) networks, supplemented by additional campaign data from the DeathExpand

Cenozoic evolution of Neotethys and implications for the causes of plate motions
Africa-North America-Eurasia plate circuit rotations, combined with Red Sea rotations and new estimates of crustal shortening in Iran define the Cenozoic history of the Neotethyan ocean betweenExpand

Uniform-sense normal simple shear of the continental lithosphere
Geophysical studies suggest that the thin crust characteristic of the Basin and Range Province extends eastward beneath the west margin of the Colorado Plateau and Rocky Mountain regions. In ArizonaExpand

A Paleogene extensional arc flare‐up in Iran
Arc volcanism across Iran is dominated by a Paleogene pulse, despite protracted and presumably continuous subduction along the northern margin of the Neotethyan ocean for most of Mesozoic andExpand

An animated tectonic reconstruction of southwestern North America since 36 Ma
We present tectonic reconstructions and an accompanying animation of deformation across the North America–Pacific plate boundary since 36 Ma. Intraplate deformation of southwestern North AmericaExpand

Unroofing, incision, and uplift history of the southwestern Colorado Plateau from apatite (U-Th)/He thermochronometry
The source of buoyancy for the uplift of cratonic plateaus is a fundamental question in continental dynamics. The ~1.9 km uplift of the Colorado Plateau since the Late Cretaceous is a prime exampleExpand

Cenozoic tectonism in the central Basin and Range; magnitude, rate, and distribution of upper crustal strain
A wealth of pre-Cenozoic geologic markers across the central Basin and Range province, defined mainly by thrust faults developed within a miogeoclinal wedge, makes it one of the best areas on EarthExpand

Near-Field Investigations of the Landers Earthquake Sequence, April to July 1992
The Landers earthquake, which had a moment magnitude (Mw) of 7.3, was the largest earthquake to strike the contiguous United States in 40 years. This earthquake resulted from the rupture of fiveExpand
