Geophysicists working in the Gulf of California have discovered a 2-km-thick salt body that extends over an area about the size of the U.S. state of Rhode Island. The Gulf of California is a young ocean basin that formed when relative movement between the Pacific and North American plates caused the Earth's crust and upper mantle to break apart there about 6 million years ago. In rift zones like the Gulf of California, thick salt bodies often form as seawater seeps into the newly forming basin and evaporates. Such salt bodies have not been found in the Gulf of California before, and details about the shape, size, and age of the salt provide geologists with new clues about how this young ocean basin formed.
