Description:
The Confusion Range in west-central Utah comprises ~5000 m of Ordovician to Triassic miogeoclinal strata in what has previously been described as a broad structural trough or synclinorium. Published structural interpretations have featured complex and geometrically unlikely internal deformation, with generally minimal overall shortening. In contrast, our work suggests that the Confusion Range is best characterized as an east-vergent fold-and-thrust belt with significant (>10 km) horizontal shortening during the late Jurassic to Cretaceous Sevier Orogeny. The Confusion Range lies east of and structurally above the Snake Range core complex, and likely originally formed the sedimentary cover to the complex.
