Albuquerque volcanic field is a monogenetic volcanic field in the Albuquerque Basin in New Mexico, United States. The Albuquerque volcanic field is made of monogenetic volcanoes that produced lava flows, cinder cones, and spatter cones. It is located about 11 km west-northwest of the city of Albuquerque, and is contained within the borders of Petroglyph National Monument. The oldest lava flows cover about 60 square km. The cones are aligned and possibly formed above two roughly north-south trending fissures. J cone is the highest feature. Its base is made of cinder, but the crater contains ...
The Maria fold and thrust belt is a portion of the North American Cordillera orogen in which geological structures accommodate roughly north–south to northwest-southeast vergent Mesozoic age crustal shortening. This lies in contrast to the remainder of the Cordillera, in which shortening is predominantly east–west. Structures associated with the Maria Fold and Thrust Belt are exposed in a series of mountain ranges in southeastern California and western Arizona. Many of the deep structures of the MFTB have been exposed due to east–west to northeast-southwest Cenozoic age extension and unroo ...
The Taos Plateau volcanic field is an area of extensive volcanism in Taos County, New Mexico, United States. It is the largest volcanic field in the Rio Grande Rift, spreading over 7.000 km 2. The age of most of the vents and associated lava flows in the field is estimated to be between 1.8 and 4 million years, with a few 22-million-year-old vents. The composition of the lavas varies from tholeiitic basalt to rhyolite. Landforms include sheet flows, cinder cones, and shield volcanoes. The sheet flows are well-exposed in the Rio Grande Gorge carved by the Rio Grande. The highest point of th ...

Bald Knoll, also called Black Knoll, Buck Knoll or Corral Knoll, is a cinder cone in Utah, in the Southwestern United States. It is the youngest volcano in the South-Western part of the Paunsaugunt plateau and it consists of basaltic lava with a well-preserved volcanic crater at the top.
Valley and range sequence-Southern Yuma County
The Valley and range sequence-Southern Yuma County is a 3-Valley sequence of NW–by–SE trending block faulted valleys and mountains. About eleven major mountain ranges connect to each other in four, mountain sequences. This regional parallel valley-mountain sequence ends in the valley of the Gila river to the North, the South, it extends to the Gran Desierto de altar in the Northwest of Mexico, the sequence is the remainder and system of the pool.
