    Basins of the Rio Grande rift have long been studied both for their record of rift development and for their potential as host of natural resources. Early workers described the basin geomorphology and the character of infilling sediments (e.g. Siebenthal, ; Bryan, ; Speigel and Baldwin, ), and subsequent research compilations provided general stratigraphic and tectonic overviews of. The Rio Grande, which flows from Colorado through New Mexico, Texas and into the Gulf of Mexico, has been an integral part of the southwest for hundreds of years. Ride the high desert trails of Caja del Rio in our Pinzgauer and walk to an overlook that provides stunning views of the river and White Rock Canyon.

    We recommend booking Rio Grande Gorge tours ahead of time to secure your spot. If you book with Tripadvisor, you can cancel up to 24 hours before your tour starts for a full refund. See all 1 Rio Grande Gorge tours on Tripadvisor/5(68). Valles Caldera (or Jemez Caldera) is a mile ( km) wide volcanic caldera in the Jemez Mountains of northern New Mexico. Hot springs, streams, fumaroles, natural gas seeps and volcanic domes dot the caldera floor landscape. The highest point in the caldera is Redondo Peak, an 11,foot (3, m) resurgent lava dome located entirely within the nates: 35°54′N °32′W / .

    Off the beaten track, yet right on the scenic Rio Grande route joining Santa Fe and Taos, Rift Gallery offers. visitors a chance to enjoy great art - ceramics, sculpture, photography, painting, and mixed media work - in a spectacular setting along the dramatic rift valley. FALL & WINTER Hours: closed for winter break through November Lower Rio Grande Edition Geologic History of the Rio Grande Rift By Jayne Aubele New Mexico is unique in many ways. One of the little-known reasons that it is unique is that it is the site of the Rio Grande Rift which extends from southern Colorado (the San Luis Valley) down the center of our state and into northern Mexico*File Size: KB.

The Rio Grande rift was largely overlooked as a major continental rift until the 's. Geologists in the United States were preoccupied with the much larger Basin and Range province and with the southern Rocky Mountains.

The Rio Grande rift is a north-south trending zone of Rio Grande Rift book east-west oriented extension that bisects the state of New Mexico. The extension is due to the Colorado Plateau pulling away from the High Plains, which causes the Earth's crust to be stretched and thinned.

What is the Rio Grande Rift. Description: Students will learn about the concept of a rift in general and about the Rio Grande Rift in particular. Two different diagrams of the rift can be used by different grade levels or can be used in sequence together for the same grade level. Students color the diagrams.

The Rio Grande is the fourth longest river in North America, flowing nearly 2, miles from Colorado to the Gulf of Mexico.

In New Mexico it occupies the Rio Grande Valley, where it provides water for habitat, agriculture, and a growing population.5/5(5).

Riecker (Editor) & ISBN ISBN Cited by: 1. 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 Rio Grande Rift is not just the canyon, or gorge, that holds the river, but an area of more thansquare miles reaching from central Colorado almost to Big Bend National Park in Texas.

Taos Plateau is part of this ‘rift system’ and lies in the San Luis Basin, which is nearly a hundred miles long and about forty-seven miles wide. El Paso's alternative magazine. El Paso's alternative magazine.

The axial basins of the northern and central Rio Grande rift evolved since late Oligocene as a chain of half grabens between the Colorado Plateau on the west and the interior of the craton on the east. The basins range from 80 to km in length and from 5 to 95 km in width, with an average width of approximately 50 km.

In the Rio Grande Rift region, we have neither a good seismic network nor a long historical record. Written records in the region extend back only to years (and are longest in New Mexico), but the earthquake recurrence interval on major faults is at least years (see next section!).

Earthquakes have been noted along the Rio Grande rift since During the period of non-instrumental reporting of earthquakes from throughnearly all earthquakes occurred along a km section of the rift from Albuquerque to Socorro, the majority in the 75 km of rift from Belen to Socorro.

This book is a comprehensive guide to the middle and late Cenozoic geology of the Rio Grande region of Colorado and New Mexico. The Rio Grande Rift is a continental rift zone which starts in the San Luis Basin in Colorado and extends south to Cuidad Juarez, Mexico.

Distinct geologic basins comprise the rift system and this report will focus on the Middle Rio Grande Basin, also known as the Albuquerque Basin in central New Mexico.

The Rio Grande Rift runs vertically down the length of New Mexico. (Figure 1) The rift formed when the crust of the Colorado Plateau to the west pulled away from the crust of the Great Plains to the east. As the divergence continued, a giant crack developed where the Colorado Plateau and Great Plains meet.
