Geophysical constraints on the flexural subsidence of the Denver Basin
MetadataShow full item record
The Denver Basin is an asymmetric Laramide (Late Cretaceous through Eocene) foreland basin covering portions of eastern Colorado, northwestern Kansas, southwestern Nebraska, and southeastern Wyoming, USA. It is bordered on the west by the Rocky Mountain Front Range Uplift, a basement cored Laramide anticline bounded by thrust faults, and on the east by the Great Plains and stable North American craton. A ~400 mGal negative Bouguer gravity anomaly exists over the Denver Basin and Front Range Uplift, with its minimum located over the highest topography in the central part of the uplift, approximately ...
