[1] The northern Gulf Extensional Province displays key structural relationships that characterize the magnitude, direction, and timing of Neogene rift-related transtension during the opening of the Gulf of California. Apatite fission track and (U-Th)/He thermochronology from the Sierra San Felipe document moderate cooling (4°C/Myr–7°C/Myr) during the early Paleogene associated with progressive unroofing caused by erosional downwearing of the ancestral Peninsular Ranges. Beginning at ∼45–35 Ma… CONTINUE READING
