Introduction. Arizona makes up a tiny fraction of the land surface on Earth (%, or thousand km 2 compared to total land area of million km 2).However, it has had a comparatively larger impact on the evolution of geologic concepts, especially in three areas of geologic inquiry: (1) porphyry copper deposits, (2) metamorphic core complexes, and (3) evolution of large rivers.

California Fish and Game During the mid- to late Cenozoic, the eastern part of the Uinta uplift played a Region 3 key role in shaping the flow of the Colorado River.

In the mid-Cenozoic, the ancestral Green River flowed south from the Wind River Mountains in northern Wyoming and then east. The late Cenozoic geology of the Colorado Plateau is relatively unknown compared to that of the earlier epochs and periods.

This condition exists despite the great interest in the late geologic history of the Plateau and the Colorado River, an interest that has continued. Colorado’s Great Plains contain three major landforms: High Plains, Colorado Piedmont and the Raton Basin.

The High Plains are prairie lands stretching from Wyoming down to Oklahoma, and include four major topographic features: the South Platte River, Arkansas River, Purgatoire River and Palmer Divide.
