Two issues (Parts I and II) of Rocky Mountain Geology (RMG) are an attempt to summarize the structure and evolution of the continental lithosphere in a Rocky Mountain transect from Wyoming to New Mexico (Fig. 1). After decades of geologic work, our understanding of the complex history of this region is still incomplete. As in many other regions, first-order questions remain about the deep structure, processes of formation, and evolution of the continental lithosphere. Fundamental new insights are most likely to come through integration of a broad range of data, involving close collaboration among geologists, geochemists, and geophysicists....
