Las Cruces country: A geophysical and remote sensing perspective
G. Randy Keller, Brian S. Penn, and Steven H. Harder

Abstract:

The Las Cruces region is in a structurally complex region where the Rio Grande rift intersects the Basin and Range province and several older structural trends. Thus, the integration of a variety of data is required to unravel the tectonic history of this region. Here we present a filtered gravity map and Landsat Thematic Mapper mosaic of the region and make a few observations about their utility and implications.
