Abstract

The theme of this article is that episodic alluviation creates approximate time lines that are useful in analyses of tectonically deforming landscapes of the Mojave Desert of California. The scope includes a process-response model for fluvial systems sensitive to major climate changes, evaluation of tectonic landforms of the Emerson fault part of the 1992 surface rupture, influences of late Quaternary faulting on local erosion and deposition. This study increased student awareness of the relevance of tectonic geomorphology to societal problems such as earthquakes
