Abstract

This paper summarizes a reconnaissance study of geomorphic response to the recent wet interval of 1978-1983 in interior regions of San Diego County. Understanding the effects of short-term, episodic changes in climate on landforms will permit the assessment of the relative role of wet and dry intervals upon the evolution of the modern landscape and responses preserved within the stratigraphic record. Additionally, significant changes in the response of hillslopes and fluvial systems between wet and dry intervals can have dramatic human implications for hazard planning and development in this rapidly growing region
