Scientists find rift between New Mexico and Colorado geologically active and capable of generating quakes
Scientists find rift between New Mexico and Colorado geologically active and capable of generating quakes January 13, 2012 – NEW MEXICO – The Rio Grande Rift, a thinning and stretching of Earth’s surface that extends from Colorado’s central Rocky Mountains to Mexico, is not dead but geologically alive and active, according to a new study involving scientists from the University of Colorado Boulder’s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences. “We don’t expect to see a lot of earthquakes, or big ones, but we will have some earthquakes,” said CU-Boulder geological sciences Professor Anne Sheehan, also a fellow at CIRES. The study also involved collaborators from the University of New Mexico, New Mexico Tech, Utah State University and the Boulder-headquartered UNAVCO. The Rio Grande Rift follows the path of the Rio Grande River from central Colorado roughly to El Paso before turning southeast toward the Gulf of Mexico. Sheehan was not too surprised when a 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck about 9 miles west of Trinidad, Colo., in the vicinity of the Rio Grande Rift on Aug. 23, 2011. The quake was the largest in Colorado since 1967 and was felt from Fort Collins to Garden City, Kan.... [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

This is not a good thing... a new rift! So you can expect new volcanos!

"As far as the potential for future earthquakes in the region, the study’s results are unequivocal, however. “The rift is still active,” Sheehan said." This is dramatic!!! eq

Thanks for the info OP. I have long been interested in this rift zone. I am close to it and have had dreams about volcanic activity near it for more years than we have known about it.

You live near it? Do you know if in the region there are any early sign of volcanism?

Spanish Peaks is right beside it and is a dormant volcano.

Not only is a dormant volcano (twin peaks at that) nearby, there is also a supervolcano near the rift in New Mexico. Here is a quote from an article I found "Located in the Jemez Volcanic Field, Valles Caldera is actually one of the smaller supervolcanoes — the caldera only measure 12 miles across as opposed to the Yellowstone caldera which is 45 miles wide and 31 miles long. It is the youngest of two calderas in the region." All of the rift area is only being recently studied. And nobody seems to pay attention to any of this!
