...L. W. Anderson; R. E. Klinger Abstract The Beatty scarp is a prominent topographic scarp located immediately south of the town of Beatty, Nevada. Early workers interpreted the feature to be a Quaternary fault scarp, but recent studies indicate that the feature is a fluvial scarp marking the former...

... min), we quantified the area, width, length, depth, volume, and time of every visible landslide, as well as the scarp angles for those within 3 min prior to a topographic scan. Both the landslide area–frequency distribution and area–volume relationship are consistent with those from field data...

.... These palaeoseismic data are derived from analysis of the mapped logs of an 82 m long, 5 m deep trench excavated across the fault, supported by 12 optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dates. The tectonic event that formed the observed 2.0 ± 0.06 m free-standing fault scarp at the trench site had a moment magnitude...

... bedrock displacements ranging from 125 m to as much as 500 m, and exhibit Quaternary movements of several centimeters to a few meters. Displacements are predominantly down to the west, and bedrock/alluvium contacts commonly are marked by fault-line scarps. The predominant northerly fault trend changes...
