Recent studies, including structural mapping, stratigraphic and sedimentologic studies, geothermochronology, and geodetic measurements, have improved our understanding of the kinematics of Miocene to Recent deformation in the central Basin and Range. Based on reconstructions of rocks in the extensionally dismembered foreland and leading edge of the Sevier thrust belt, offset along the Las Vegas Valley shear zone, and on the provenance of a unique clast assemblage in proximal channel facies deposits at Frenchman Mountain, the southern and northern Lake Mead extensional domains have extended ~94 km and ~46 km, respectively.
