...James G. Moore; Edward du Bray Abstract The north-trending Kern Canyon fault, the longest fault within the southern Sierra Nevada, has been mapped from lat 36°00′N to its northern end near lat 36°40′N. The fault cuts and offsets granitic plutons as young as 80 m.y., but despite the fact that many...
