Abstract

This study evaluates the relative influences of the environmental factors on the evolution of alluvial fans in Buena Vista Valley, north-central Nevada. The objectives of this study include : delineating the surficial stratigraphy of the alluvial fan deposits; relating the stratigraphy of alluvial fans to geomorphic features and deposits associated with the climatic and tectonic history of the basin; establishing a temporal framework for the stratigraphy and comparing it to that developed regionally by Hawley and Wilson (1965); and, examining the driving forces of aggradation and entrenchment on alluvial fans in Buena Vista Valley
