Abstract

In the June Lake district of east-central California, the Sierra Nevada has been uplifted along a number of closely-spaced faults, and the rectilinear outline of the range front is controlled by their pattern. That repeated movement is characteristic of these faults is shown by increasing throw where they cut successively older moraines.
