...MARTIN G. MILLER Abstract Field relations in the footwall of the Badwater Turtleback fault provide evidence that macroscopically ductile deformation was directly responsible for early stages of brittle faulting during extensional denudation. Footwall rocks, which are typically mylonitie, consist...

...Martin G. Miller Abstract The late Cenozoic Badwater Turtleback fault separates an upper plate of volcanic and sedimentary rocks from a lower plate of predominantly mylonitic plutonic and metamorphic rocks. The Turtleback fault, however, is not a single continuous surface, but consists of at least...

... faults with in-place sedimentary basins. Structural and stratigraphic relationships between the Badwater turtleback and the adjacent Furnace Creek basin in Death Valley provide a test of these contrasting models. There, ductile extensional deformation of basement rock at the Badwater turtleback coincided...

...Martin G. Miller Abstract Fault gouge along the Badwater Turtleback fault system displays abundant evidence for mesoscopic ductility, as foliation, isolated and/or rotated inclusions, and isoclinal folds. Fault-gouge thicknesses also vary dramatically. At the outcrop scale, gouge thicknesses can...

... of lithologies exposed above it on the range flank. Stratigraphically higher miogeoclinal rocks, which might have been exposed on this flank at earlier times, are not present; therefore the fanglomerate is probably geologically young, possibly Quaternary age. The Badwater turtleback fault cuts volcanic rocks...

This interpretation is important because it shows that the thin-skinned and thick-skinned styles of deformation are not mutually exclusive. Furthermore, these newly identified thrusts help clarify...
