... Abstract The Cañones fault zone in north-central New Mexico is a boundary between the Colorado Plateau to the west and the Rio Grande rift to the east. It consists of a major fault, the Cañones fault, and a series of synthetic and antithetic normal faults within the Abiquiu embayment...

In a catchment with mixed soil cover, vadose zone drainage is shown not to be significant in sustaining summer low flows at the spring. The performance of the model is limited in some cases...
