The Muddy Creek Formation provides a unique three-dimensional exposure of a post-tectonic basin-fill deposit in the Basin and Range province. This Miocene-Pliocene sequence is exposed in Meadow Valley Wash north of the Lake Mead region in southern Nevada. Exposure of basin deposits is excellent because of effects of downcutting in the Colorado.   The lake widens again to the south where it lies within a wider, more gently sloping alluvial basin, reaching its greatest width in the central part of this basin. Lake Mohave is constricted once again to the south with increasing slope of the alluvial basin and is bounded by the steep slopes of the Newberry Mountains to the west and alluvium.

Book. Jan ; Development of Miocene. T he geologic story of the landscape surrounding lakes Mead and Mohave began more than a billion years ago when this area was a shallow sea. Sediments from this ancient ocean were invaded and contorted by molten rock, some of which made it to the surface as lava flows.

The mix of molten rock, sediments and lava cooled to become the billion-year-old gneiss. The Basin and Range Province is a vast physiographic region covering much of the inland Western United States and northwestern is defined by unique basin and range topography, characterized by abrupt changes in elevation, alternating between narrow faulted mountain chains and flat arid valleys or physiography of the province is the result.

Miocene Epoch: Tectonics and Paleoclimate The Miocene saw a change in global circulation patterns due to slight position changes of the continents and globally warmer climates.

Conditions on each continent changed somewhat because of these positional changes, however it was an overall increase in aridity through mountain building that favored.

The Miocene (/ ˈ m aɪ. ə ˌ s iː n, ˈ m aɪ. oʊ-/ MY-ə-seen, MY-oh-) is the first geological epoch of the Neogene Period and extends from about (Ma). The Miocene was named by Charles Lyell; its name comes from the Greek words μείων (meiōn, "less") and καινός (kainos, "new") and means "less recent" because it has 18% fewer modern sea invertebrates than the Pliocene.

From these source rocks most of the oil in the valley is derived.
