Map: {{{Name}}}
  • "The Central Nevada Scismic Zone is delineated by a narrow, major zone that is a nearly continous 300-km long rupture zone that extends from Owens Valley, California, north past Dixie Valley, Nevada. Seismicity indicates that a regional pattern of NW-SE tension exists resulting in crustal extension caused by the interaction of a westward flow of mantle material beneath the Basin and Range Province with the boundary of the Sierra Nevada batholith. '"`UNIQ--ref-00000000-QINU`"'" cannot be used as a page name in this wiki.
