Older talk at Talk:Basin and range

I removed the Idaho msg, because only a small portion of the Basin and Range Province lies in Idaho. The probability that a reader would want to look for Boise (for example) is very low. – hike395 04:06, 24 Apr 2004 (UTC)


This article needs major reworking. Among the edits just made, I removed plagiarized material taken from the USGS article. Tmangray (talk) 01:18, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

One of the refs did say it was adapted from the USGS site, though, clearly, not much adapted. USGS material can be copied without attribution legally, though of course that is contrary to Wikipedia spirit. Cheers, and thanks for your improvements here. Geologyguy (talk) 01:58, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Volcanism section[edit]

I feel that the new volcanism section is unbalancing the article. I think that there certainly should be a volcanism section, but at the moment it's mainly a list of volcanic eruptions, concentrating on their estimated erupted volumes. I'm sure that there is a place for this material but I'm not convinced that this article is that place. Any other views on this? Mikenorton (talk) 18:00, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

I agree, sorry about that, did not know it would get so long. I'll do it until Sunday. --Chris.urs-o (talk) 18:17, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Chris, now I'm left thinking that the volcanism section is a little light, some people are just never satisfied are they. Mikenorton (talk) 09:25, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
I know. I'd like show in this section later on a map of the Basin and Range Province with the main volcanic fields on it. Then it is not so light anymore ;) I think this section a lil bit important with Socorro and Yellostone calderas showing life signs, though ;) --Chris.urs-o (talk) 09:45, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Category: Geologic provinces of the United States[edit]

Added Category:Geologic provinces of the United States as much of the Basin and Range Province is not in California; however the other states involved do not have "Category-Geologic provinces of state-name" - so using "Category-U.S." so readers can find the good article. Please share a better option.---Look2See1 t a l k → 19:35, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Well that makes sense, I should have thought that one through. Mikenorton (talk) 19:51, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Images don't show up in my browser?[edit]

How come none of the images show up in my browser? (I'm using Chrome 43.0.2357.124)01:48, 22 July 2015 (UTC)2601:640:4001:266C:C1FC:2B2A:E502:30DC (talk)

Volcanism map[edit]

What do the various colors mean for the dots on this map? Mysticdan (talk) 21:27, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
