Abstract

Explanation of the origin of the complex array of structures in some extensional terranes (including folds and normal, strike-slip, and reverse faults) includes many models that implicitly assume kinematic compatibility between and contemporaneous operation of these structures. The paper presents new stratigraphic and age data from the highly extended western Lake Mead region, Nevada, together with an analysis of fault kinematics to test the assumptions of kinematics compatibility and contemporaneity of structures in this area. The analysis indicates an overlapping but clearly distinct chronology of deformation. -from Authors
