The CACTIS (California‐Arizona Crustal Transect Interim Synthesis) workshop in May 1988 brought researchers together in Flagstaff, Arizona, to discuss the geologic evolution and crustal structure of the southern Cordillera between the San Andreas fault in southeastern California and the Colorado Plateau in Arizona [Sass et al., 1988]. The first set of papers resulting from the workshop appeared in the Journal of Geophysical Research (JGR) as the special CACTIS 1 section in January 1990 [Howard et al., 1990], and a second as CACTIS 2 in November 1990 [Haxel et al., 1990]. Twelve papers in this issue form part 3 of the CACTIS series. A final collection of papers will appear in the future as a joint special section with the California Consortium for Crustal Studies (CALCRUST).
