Lake Manly(?) shorelines in the Eastern Mojave Desert, California

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



During pluvial periods of the late Quaternary, Death Valley was occupied by a lake, called Lake Manly. The most prominent shoreline of this lake is that of the Blackwelder stand, 90 m above sea level. The Mesquite Spring and Salt Spring Hills shorelines were probably formed by the Blackwelder stand and subsequently displaced , tectonically, due to transpression in the northeastern Mojave Desert and NW-SE extension across Death Valley. This tectonic regime would result in subsidence of Death Valley and the Salt Spring Hills relative to Mesquite Spring
