Abstract

Fresh geomorphic expressions of faulting are described along the fault. These include a linear trace marked by vegetation and synthetic and antithetic scarps on different generations of alluvial surfaces, including active fans. Only dip slip displacements are discerned. The geomorphology aids in age estimation by providing relief controls and refining the timescale. Historical tectonism is inferred. -from Author
