Title Exhumation of the central Wasatch Mountains, Utah: 2, thermokinematic model of exhumation, erosion, and thermochronometer interpretation
Date 2002
Description The Wasatch fault is a ~370 km long normal fault in Utah that marks the boundary between the stable Colorado Plateau to the east and the extending Basin and Range to the west. Understanding the thermokinematic evolution of this fault can provide insights into intracontinental extensional tectonics and deformation processes in other rift zones (e.g., East Africa Rift, Transantarctic Mountains). We explore the thermokinematics of footwall exhumation and erosion in the Cottonwood Intrusive Belt of the central Wasatch Mountains.
