A Tectonic Boundary for the Southern Colorado Plateau
A tectonic boundary should be defined by changes in tectonic elements. Tectonic elements would include such parameters as structural style, stress orientations, volcanism, heat flow, seisrnicity and changes in crustal thickness. Examination of these tectonic elements for the southern Colorado Plateau suggests that the southwestern part of the physiographic plateau appears to be tectonically part of the Basin and Range province.
