A geophysical analysis of crustal structure in the Ruidoso area
Donald G. Roberts, Donald C. Adams, and G. Randy Keller

Abstract:

A variety of geophysical data has been analyzed in the Ruidoso area in order to determine the deep structure of the area. From a crustal structure point of view, the crustal thinning associated with the Rio Grande rift extends well into the physiographic Great Plains. On a more local scale, a large gravity high in the Ruidoso area appears to outline a Pennsylvanian uplift.
