Abstract

The primary objective here is to establish a rate curve for soil development in the White Mountains, knowing that variables such as climate, influx of eolian dust, and the rate of surface denudation have varied with time. Establishing such a rate curve provides a basis for making provisional age estimates for undated geologic deposits within the region, such as alluvial-fan surfaces and outwash terraces
