Abstract

This study identifies the patterning of clast cover as the dominant control of water and sediment distribution across and into this arid landscape. The AA. have found that desert pavement surfaces are a complex association of landscape and hydrologic elements governed by their surface characteristics. The AA. identified 6 unique surface mosaic types for a desert pavement landscape formed on a single-aged basalt flow in the Mojave Desert. They report that these surface mosaics predict the spatial distribution of fundamental desert vegetation and soil characteristics
