Geophysical anomalies in southwestern New Mexico
Michael V. DeAngelo and G. Randy Keller

Abstract:

Gravity and aeromagnetic data have been compiled for southwestern New Mexico and surrounding areas. A series of maps has been prepared using various filter parameters. These maps display many relationships of geological importance. The preliminary analysis reported here suggests that the Laramide Burro uplift was an extensive feature and that early and late Cenozoic structures can be differentiated on the basis of strike filtering.
