...), and inferred geophysically at Mormon Point ( Keener et al., 1993 ). The range-flank fault systems of the Inyo and Slate ranges are similar to the Panamint and Death Valley systems, consisting of low-angle normal faults that form the range flanks, and scarp-forming faults that cut alluvium at the range fronts...

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...
