In this paper, the AA. present data and a conceptual model of how sediment storage and yield vary betwen glacially modified and unmodified catchments in the eastern Sierra Nevada. They explore the relationship between the degree of glaciation and fan-head incision, the magnitude and location of sediment storage, and the long-term pattern of sediment evacuation from the catchments. The AA. focus in particular on the Shepherd and Symmes Creek catchments, southwest of Independence, because of their well-constrained chronologies of debris-flow deposition
