The Nevada Jurassic Magmatic Province is defined as a region of abundant late Middle and Late Jurassic plutonism and associated deformation inboard of the contemporaneous magmatic arc. The stratigraphic, structural, and magmatic history of the Nevada Jurassic Magmatic Province allows assessment of the relative importance of crustal kinematics and thermal perturbation of the lithospheric mantle in Jurassic tectonics of the northern Great Basin. Constraints on the tectonic development of an area far inboard of the plate boundary enhance understanding of the causes of intraplate deformation and magmatism and their relationship to the plate boundary.

Simple thermal models, estimates of the...
