Abstract

Trenches excavated across fault scarps on a 13 ka delta surface at Brigham City, Utah, document 4 types of soil-catena phenomena. 2 soil catenas were used to evaluate the applicability of a continuity approach to paleoearthquake dating, by which percentages of total development time represented by each soil at a fault scarp footslope could be estimated
