Kirkham and Robert B. Scott Late Cenozoic tectonic and geomorphic framework surrounding the evaporite dissolution area in west-central Colorado / Thomas A. Steven. Regional late Cenozoic evaporite tectonism has caused widespread collapse in west-central Colorado.

Miocene volcanic rocks are downdropped as much as m in a collapsed area that is at least km2 and possibly more than km2. During the late Cenozoic, rivers removed an estimated km3 of dissolved evaporite from the contiguous Carbondale and Eagle collapse.

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.

Sea levels rose and fell, affecting the coastline, but the interior of North America remained. Books about Late Cenozoic Evaporite Tectonism and Volcanism in West-central Colorado. Language: en Pages: Geology and Regional Metamorphism of Some High-grade Cordierite Gneisses, Front Range, Colorado.

Authors: Dolores J. Gable, Paul Kibler Sims. Categories: Cordierite. Abstract Dissolution and flow of Pennsylvanian evaporitic rocks in west-central Colorado created the Carbondale Collapse Center, a mi2 structural depression with about 4, ft of vertical collapse during the late Cenozoic.

Evaporite tectonism in the lower Roaring Fork River valley in west-central Colorado has caused regional subsidence of a differentially downdropped area in the southern part of the Carbondale collapse center during the late Cenozoic.

Radiometric and geologic information indicate a complex history of Cenozoic volcanism and tectonism in the central Andes. K-Ar ages on silicic pyroclastic rocks demonstrate major volcanic activity in central and southern Peru, northern Chile, and adjacent areas during the Early and Middle Miocene, and provide additional evidence for volcanism during the Late Eocene.

The Late Cenozoic Ice Age, or Antarctic Glaciation began million years ago at the Eocene-Oligocene Boundary and is ongoing. It is Earth's current ice age or icehouse beginning is marked by the formation of the Antarctic ice sheets.

The Late Cenozoic Ice Age gets its name due to the fact that it covers roughly the last half of Cenozoic era so far. 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. The event is known as the Laramide Orogeny (orogeny means "mountain building").
