Abstract

The pattern of tilt domains is characterized by transverse zones or boundaries, parallel to the extension direction, and by antiformal (tilts away from) and synformal (tilts toward) boundaries at right angles to the extension direction. Tilting of ranges averages about 15o to 20o in Nevada and Utah and indicates extension of about 20% to 30% for the entire Great Basin region. -from Author
