Abstract

The polarity reversal patterns, together with earlier vertebrate paleontologic studies, restrict the time span for deposition of the Palm Spring Formation to the middle-late Matuyama chron (2.0-0.75 myr ago). Characteristic directions of least-squares fit for 73 samples suggest little or no overall rotation, despite the severe late Quaternary tectonic activity demonstrated by the intense deformation of these strata
