    The Arid Transition life-zone comprises the western part of the Dakotas, north-eastern Montana, and irregular areas in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and western Texas, covering for the most part the eastern base of the Cascade and Sierra Nevada Mountains and the higher parts of the Great Basin and the plateaus. Geologic factors in the Basin and Range province in Utah are more favorable for the occurrence of geothermal resources than in other areas on the Colorado Plateaus or in the Middle Rocky Mountains. These geologic factors are principally crustal extension and crustal thinning during the last

To illuminate rifting processes across the Transition Zone between the extensional Great Basin and stable Colorado Plateau interior, we collected an east-west profile of wideband and 30 long. The Colorado Plateaus form a transition area between the Semiarid Southwest, the Rocky Mountains, the Great Basin, and the plateaus to the north.

Northern Arizona, southeastern Utah, southwestern Colorado, and northwestern New Mexico—the Four Corners area—are included.

Plateaus, canyons, and escarpments mark the region. For many, the Great Basin is an affair of the heart and soul that grows with intimacy.

It has to do with a psychology of open space and an appreciation of the Great Basin as a place. The two opposing points of view were challengers in the s with the proposed MX "racetrack" missile system.
