Description

Stratigraphic, geochronologic, and geochemical patterns of Neoproterozoic to Cambrian sedimentary and volcanic rocks in Utah, Nevada, and SE Idaho record a dynamically evolving landscape along the North American Cordillera margin, which included: (1) initial development of intracratonic basins with deposition of siliciclastic strata of the Uinta Mountain Group from ~. 770 to 740. Ma; (2) early rifting and volcanism along a N-S (present day geographic coordinates) basin system with deposition of...[Show more]
