Abstract

This paper deals with 2 contrasted mountain-front alluvial fan systems in the American Basin and Range province. An assessment is made of the extent to which differences in fan regime between the 2 areas over the period from the late Pleistocene to the early Holocene, may be due to climatic, vegetation, or other differences between the fan environments. During the late Pleistocene, both fan systems terminated in pluvial lakes, Lake Lahontan in Nevada and Lake Mojave in California. In both cases, dated lake shoreline provide good time-lines for the correlation, relative dating and interpretation of the fan sequences
