    The volcanics of the Early Triassic Koipato Formation of central Nevada unconformably overlie the Golconda Allochthon and, classically, this relationship has been used to define the timing of the Sonoma Orogeny as post-Middle Permian to earliest Triassic. However, the Koipato Formation represents a rather isolated magmatic succession, with other western ://

During the Mesozoic, the western, or Cordilleran, margin of North America was dominated by convergent plate tectonics. Sedimentary basins within and peripheral to this margin developed in a variety of tectonic settings (Dickinson, a) and contain basin-fill sequences that reflect the complex interplay of basin margin (and interior) tectonism, erosion, basin subsidence   western U.S.
