The lecture will provide a detailed overview of the major fault and fold structures of the Bighorn Mountains and their relationship to the physical geography of the Bighorns, the sedimentary record and thermochronology studies which constrain the age of this mountain building event, and the global tectonic processes that caused the Laramide Orogeny.
