Abstract

The AA. attempt to correlate spatially varying rates of vertical tectonism along the southern frontal fault system of the San Gabriel Mountains, with corresponding hypsometric integrals and landscape fractal dimensions. They also seek to constrain the effects of lithology and climate on these measures of landscape variability by attempting to correlate them with variability in rock type and other pertinent geomorphic variables across the range. Three-dimensional topographic modeling and observed geomorphic features are then used to suggest potential processes responsible for the correlations. Implications of these results for the topographic evolution of the San Gabriel Mountains are then discussed
