Nicholas Christie-Blick is a lead proponent for an International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP) initiative to test the extensional detachment paradigm in the Sevier Desert basin, Utah. A priority in 2019-20, in conjunction with Prof. M. Beatrice Magnani at Southern Methodist University, is to seek funds to acquire geophysical data to evaluate the character of the sub-Tertiary contact, and to provide 3-D context for a coring project at the ARCO Hole-in-Rock #1 well.
They continue to work at several other locations in the Basin and Range Province: the Death Valley region of eastern California; adjacent parts of Nevada, Arizona and Utah; and southeastern Idaho.
