Upper Cenozoic terrestrial basin-fill sedimentary and basic volcanic rocks are common in km 2 Basalt area, which includes parts of the Gore, Sawatch, and southern Park Ranges, Elk Mountains, Grand Mesa, and White River Plateau. Principally on the basis of whole-rock K-Ar ages from basalt flows, the rocks can be placed in four groups.

Curtis. The Cenozoic Landscape Evolution of the Southern Rocky Mountains Project is a multi-year investigation funded by the National Cooperative Geologic Mapping project utilizes a combination of geologic mapping, geophysical surveys, basin modeling, and structural, neotectonic, geomorphic, volcanic, stratigraphic, and geochronologic studies to better understand the geologic.

The Cenozoic Era began about 70 million years ago and extends to the present. In our book of 1, pages, the Cenozoic represents only the last thirteen pages. The beginning of this era coincides with the birth of the Rocky Mountains.

Curtis. Ancestral rock. The rocks in the Rocky Mountains were formed before the mountains were raised by tectonic forces. The oldest rock is Precambrian metamorphic rock that forms the core of the North American continent.

There is also Precambrian sedimentary argillite, dating back to billion years the Paleozoic, western North America lay underneath a shallow sea, which deposited.

At the beginning of Laramide orogeny, a blanket of undisturbed Cretaceous and minor older Mesozoic sedimentary rocks 1, to 3, m thick covered the Southern Rocky Mountain province, and the last of a series of Cretaceous seas was starting to withdraw northeastward across the region.

The Southern Rocky Mountains of northern New Mexico, Colorado and southern Wyoming consist of a broad array of Proterozoic-basement-cored structural uplifts and flanking sedimentary basins.

Many of these uplift-basin systems involved some degree of Late Cretaceous to Eocene crustal contraction when they initially formed during the Laramide Orogeny. Tectonics, geochronology, and volcanism in the Southern Rocky Mountains and Rio Grande rift (PDF).

Socorro, NM New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. – Archived from the original (PDF) on. Rocky Mountain National Park is part of the Colorado Front Range.

The Front Range rises west of Boulder, Denver and Colorado Springs and is the easternmost mountain range of the southern Rockies. The Rocky Mountains run from northern New Mexico with a northwest trend to British Columbia, Canada as part of the Continental Divide of North America.

Southern Rocky Mountains. The Rocky Mountains of Colorado and New Mexico have a complex topographical history. Their high relief is a product of four components: uplift of the late Paleozoic Ancestral Rockies, compressional uplift of Precambrian basement rock during the Laramide Orogeny, igneous activity during the midto late Cenozoic, and extensional tectonics associated with the Rio.

From: Landscape Evolution in the United States, Related terms: Cenozoic. In our book of pages of Earth history, the Cenozoic represents only the last thirteen pages.

Most of these pages fall into the Tertiary Period. The Tertiary represents a critical time in the geologic history of Colorado. The beginning of the Tertiary coincides with the birth of the Rocky Mountains.

The Cenozoic era (consisting of the Paleogene, Neogene, and Quaternary periods, 66 million years ago to present) was an age of diversification and evolution of mammals, birds, insects, flowering plants, and coral reefs. The continents continued to spread apart to reach their present-day positions.
