... Mountains, the Burro Trail and Amargosa “thrust” faults of Hunt and Mabey (1966) form subparallel roof and sole faults, respectively, of a kinematically related system of currently low-angle normal faults and subvertical strike-slip faults named here the Eastern Panamint fault system. The roof and sole...

... Greenschist and amphibolite facies metamorphic rocks within the core of the Panamint Mountains of southeastern California were brought to the surface largely by movement on diachronous systems of west-dipping normal faults. Much of the unroofing can be attributed to displacement along the low...

... ago slip. The Harrisburg fault of the Tucki Mountain detachment system is a likely candidate for an earlier slip, possibly during the regionally observed extension during Late Cretaceous and Eocene. We created a model of the ca. 0–15 Ma ago displacement history of Panamint Valley using our new slip...

...” but these have not been investigated, nor have turtleback-like structures been described in other Death Valley–area ranges. In this paper I document the presence of turtleback-like fault systems at the margins of the Panamint, Inyo, and Slate ranges (Fig. 1) , discuss models for the kinematic evolution...

... m) thick, extension of the rock had formed a system of westward-dipping normal faults along which rhyolite porphyry dikes were intruded. Continued upward movement of the magma resulted in the formation of a nearly rectangular trapdoor of sedimentary rocks bounded by vertical faults. The trapdoor...

... the region and for the interpretation of geodetic velocity fields (e.g., McClusky et al., 2001 ). The primary structures in the region are the Panamint Valley fault zone, the Searles Valley– Manly Pass fault system, and the Ash Hill fault ( Fig. 1 ). This discussion centers on the nature of fault...

The estimate of 80 km of transport distance is based on the apparent right-lateral offset of late Precambrian and Paleozoic facies and thickness trends along the Furnace Creek fault zone that bounds the detached...

... Province and developed as isolated basin in a pull-apart system ( Burchfiel et al., 1987 ). The general structure of the basins is a rhomb-shaped graben or half-graben bordered by strike-slip faults ( Aydin and Nur, 1985 ; Price and Cosgrove, 1990 ). The Panamint Valley is bounded by three major fault...

... on the Furnace Creek basin). The Panamint Range, on the western flank of Death Valley, is the relatively intact hanging wall to the Amargosa–Black Mountains detachment. The range hosts two major Cenozoic structures: the Eastern Panamint fault system and the Panamint-Emigrant detachment ( Fig. 1...

... that is presently at ∼521 m elevation. The northern, smaller, and higher basin is here referred to as the Lake Hill basin, and the prominent southern one is called the Ballarat basin (Fig. 1) . The Owens River system reaches the south end of Panamint Valley through streamflow when Searles Valley fills to its...

Displacement on the strike-slip faults is absorbed by extension or compression occurring at the termination...

...) are similar to those of other major faults across this portion of the Basin and Range, which, from east to west, include the Death Valley, Panamint Valley-Hunter Mountain, and Owens Valley fault systems. However, in contrast to these faults, the average post–mid-Miocene slip rate on the SFS is approximately...

... that trends northeast into Panamint Valley. Thus, although displacement along the range-front fault system dies out northward, we infer that active deformation occurs within the range and likely links extension in Searles Valley with deformation in Panamint Valley. 07 03 2007 26 05 2006 29 12...

.... California, USA. NW–SE-striking fault zones bound the Confidence Hills. In 3D, these fault segments are inferred to link at depth to a common basal fault system. The flower structure is formed by doubly plunging anticlines that roughly parallel the bounding fault segments. Fold development was aided...

For the Rotliegend reservoirs, original porosities and permeabilities of these zones were reduced to a minimum by enhanced cementation along the fluid...
