... Española basin. Thus the boundary at Abiquiu preserves an early stage in the formation of the rift boundary. The shift in activity may have resulted from a change in regional stress field, or from increasing magnitude of strain, or both. The change in locus of extension reflects a narrowing of rift basins...
