Title: Regional geology and geophysics of the Jemez Mountains

Abstract

The western margin of the Rocky Mountain tectonic belt is the initial site for the Los Alamos Geothermal Project. lgneous activity in the area culminated with the formation of a collapsed volcanic caldera and the deposition of thick beds of tuff. Geophysical studies indicate that the region is one of relatively highterrestrial heat flow, low-crustal density, low-crustal seismic velocities, low-crustal magnetoelectric impedance, and thin crust. 34 references.
