Thirty to forty m.y. of post-Laramide degradation of the southern Rocky Mountains likely produced relatively low-relief topography within the crystalline cores of the ranges, and capped the adjacent sedimentary basins with easily eroded sediments. We focus on the modern, more dissected topography of these ranges, refl ecting late Cenozoic evolution driven by fl uvial and glacial exhumation, each of which affects different portions of the landscape in characteristic ways. Ongoing exhumation of… Expand
