Summary

This release provides the data for a comprehensive survey of geologic structures in the eastern Española Basin of the Rio Grande rift, New Mexico. The release includes data and analyses from 53 individual fault zones and 22 other brittle structures, such as breccia zones, joints, and veins, investigated at a total of just over 100 sites. Structures were examined and compared from poorly lithified Tertiary sediments, as well as Paleozoic sedimentary and Proterozoic crystalline rocks. Data and analyses, include geologic maps; field observations and measurements; orientation, kinematic paleostress analyses and modeling; statistical examination of 575 fault trace lengths derived from aeromagnetic data in the Española and adjacent basins; [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this release is to disseminate the data measured and analyzed during this survey. The results provide a broad picture of structural diversity and tectonic evolution along the eastern flank of the central Rio Grande rift and the adjacent Española basin. The results also are representative of many upper crustal faults and associated brittle deformation processes. Such processes commonly associated with a large variety of such structures suggest several conceptual elements and approaches useful in developing testable hypotheses when assessing ground- and surface water resources.
