The Late Cretaceous to early Tertiary tectonic setting in north-central Sonora has been characterized by compressional structures. This study proposes a northeast extensional deformation event typified by thermal uplift, differential vertical movements and associated gravity sliding… in order to continue, download the full paper in PDF
