Lithospheric Structure beneath the Colorado Rocky Mountains and Support for High Elevations

Abstract

The Southern Rocky Mountains (SRM) have long been the object of fascination in western US geology. Their enigmatic high elevations (>2.5 km), above an already high broad Cenozoic orogenic plateau, and cryptic uplift history have motivated much speculation on the source and timing uplift. The CREST (Colorado Rockies Experiment and Seismic Transects) project… (More)
