... toward a fault-parallel orientation. We apply the model to the southern San Andreas fault near the Mecca Hills (southern California, USA), where drainage basins change in orientation with proximity to the fault. Comparison of observed and modeled topography suggests that the OFD rate in the Mecca Hills...
