Abstract

Previous studies of Adrian Pass concluded that it was an abandoned channel of the Walker River. The evidence presented in this study suggests that Adrian Pass was formed by overflow of Lake Lahontan, the second-largest Great Basin Quaternary lake, from the lower Walker River Basin to the Carson Desert Basin. Walker River occupancy of Adrian Pass during post-Lake Lahontan time was relatively brief. - (SLD)
