Surface geologic mapping, regional and high-density reflection seismic data and information from approximately 370 wells have been combined to describe geometrically that area of the Western Overthrust belt between the Snake River plain and the Uinta uplift. Particular care has been taken to verify two-dimensional interpretations of multiple thrust sheets by linear restoration. By establishing equivalence of pre-thrust lengths of affected beds, one can gain confidence in interpreted structural… CONTINUE READING
