NAFR straddles the boundary of the Walker Lane belt and the Basin and Range extensional province. Neotectonic motions are inferred from GPS and seismic observations. GPS velocities indicate that the strain field changes from the east-west extension typical of the Basin and Range to the northwest-southeast-directed transtension characteristic of the Walker Lane belt across the region.
