.... This paper deals with a part of the uplifted zone extending from Donner Pass 10miles S. 15°E. to Squaw Peak. Here are two areas of maximum uplift caused by folding and faulting of the east limbs of the folds. The faults with greatest throw dip east at high angles, but notable movements occurred on west...

... of the volcanic sequence are separated by minor unconformities. These, and the major post-basalt unconformity, resulted from episodes of compressive deformation which recurred from middle Tertiary to post-Pliocene time along the Donner zone, which extends north-northwest 15 miles or more along the crest...

In addition, ∼5 m of down to the east displacement is observed in the relatively flat upper terrace of Donner Lake ground moraine (Fig.  3 ). In between these offset scarp crests...

The ~12.4 mm/a rate of relative motion between the Sierra Nevada–Great Valley block and North America ( Bennett et al., 2003 ) suggests a kinematic linkage between the San Andreas fault system and the Eastern California shear zone...

...Yenan Cao; George P. Mavroeidis; Mansoor Ashoory Abstract Several studies have generated low‐frequency dynamic ground deformations (strains and rotations) in the near‐fault region of actual or hypothetical earthquakes using physics‐based simulation techniques. However, no systematic attempt has...

... it can be related to the gypsum at Glenwood Springs and can be identified at Hoosier Pass, thus giving basis for further correlation on the west and south. Tweto has rejected the use of color in separating formations in this area because “color lines intersect the faunal zones at large angles in places...
