Southern Colorado Plateau Geothermal Region


Map: {{{Name}}}

"The Colorado Plateau is a high standing crustal block of relatively undeformed rocks surrounded by the highly deformed Rocky Mountains, and Basin and Range Provinces. The Uinta Mountains of Utah and Rocky Mountains of Colorado define the northern and northeastern boundaries of the Plateau. The Rio Grande Rift Valley in New Mexico defines the eastern boundary. The southern boundary is marked by the Mogollon Rim, an erosional cuesta that separates the Colorado Plateau from the extensively faulted Basin and Rang Province. To the west is a broad transition zone where the geologic features are transitional between typical Colorado Plateau, and Basinand Range. The margins of the Colorado Plateau are marked by major volcanic accumulations." National Park Service[1]
