Geology, gravity, and earthquake data are examined in a 200-km-wide zone along the Wasatch fault zone, the eastern boundary of the Basin and Range province in northern Utah. Gravity data define the geometry of crustal segmentation responsible for the major basin-and-range blocks. Locally, basin fill is more than 4 km thick, and minimum vertical offsets across the major normal fault zones vary between 3 and more than 5 km. East-west-trending transverse zones truncate individual basin-and-range blocks. Some zones are bounded by faults; along other zones the margins are gently downwarped. It has been suggested that the transverse zones delimit distinct,...
