Tectonics, geochronology, and volcanism in the Southern Rocky Mountains and Rio Grande rift [electronic resource] in SearchWorks catalog. The Rio Grande Rift began forming between 35 and 29 million years ago when Earth’s lithosphere began to spread apart, triggering volcanism (volcanic activity) in the region. It stretches from the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, to at least Leadville, Colorado (and probably continues further north).

      The rift is named after the Rio Grande, the major river that flows through most of its extent, from southern Colorado, through New Mexico, and along the border between Texas, USA, and the Mexican.

R., , Characteristics of the Rio Grande rift in the vicinity of Socorro, New Mex­ico, from geophysical studies; Guidebook to the Rio Grande Rift in New Mexico and Colorado, Circular , p. .

        The Rio Grande rift and the Basin and Range are adjacent extensional provinces with a north-south boundary running through central New Mexico south of the Colorado Plateau. Despite extensive study, thermochronologic data allowing comparisons of their tectonic history remains sparse in southern New Mexico where the two provinces meet. In order to investigate the timing of extension Author: M. Gavel, J. M. Amato, J. Ricketts, S. Kelley. The figure at left shows the best data currently available for the Rio Grande Rift region, from instruments installed for EarthScope's Plate Boundary Observatory and for the Rio Grande Rift project. Some of these GPS sites show motions in odd directions that likely are not related to tectonics, but ignoring the anomalous motions, the data.

During the last 20 years this feature has become widely recognized as a major Cenozoic continental rift : Randy Keller. As much as 15, feet of rift sediment has accumulated in the axial basins of the Rio Grande rift, forming important aquifers for some of the largest cities in our state.

However, not all rifts experience magmatism and in some cases, some fault lines are volcanically dormant. This paper shall compare the Great East African Rift with the Rio Grande Rift to identify similarities and differences between these rift systems. A striking feature of magmatism associated with the Rio Grande rift is the very small volume of volcanic rocksf any agen the rift.

The largest fields within the rift grabens (Jemez and Taos Plateau volcanic fields) are part of the northeast- trending Jemez lineament (Fig.

We describe the mid-Miocene to present opening history of the Rio Grande rift from tectonic subsidence patterns, published Quaternary fault activity, and spatial, temporal and geochemical distributions of volcanism.

Rift opening was quite fast until 8 Ma, with tectonic subsidence rates comparable to those of the pre-rupture phase of rifted continent margins, but post-8 Ma rates are Author: J.

However, it has been suggested that igneous activity in the Rio Grande rift is possibly related to that in the Basin and Range based on the similar timing of tectonic events and episodic magmatism (Baldridge et al., ; Seager et al., ).
