.... These cave levels formed during cold periods with stable river beds, and are coeval with fluvial terraces of rivers that flow perpendicular to the strike of bedding in gypsum monoclines. When rivers entrench, renewed cave formation occurs very rapidly, resulting in the formation of a lower level. River...

... the Hazeva Formation ( Calvo, 2002 ), which includes also lake deposits. Some of these sediments are preserved within karstic caves scattered all over the central Negev high plateau ( Zilberman and Calvo, 2013 ), suggesting intensive karstification since the Oligocene–early Miocene. Beginning...

...Andrew Darling; Kelin Whipple Abstract Hypotheses for the age of the western Grand Canyon (WGC) range from younger than 6 Ma to older than 70 Ma. We study the relationships among topography, geology, and available erosion rates in space and time to place constraints on plausible canyon incision...

... history of Pleistocene glaciation in the Alps. It is apparent from the burial ages that young sediment may be emplaced in old caves; thus the burial ages are minima for cave formation. For example, sample SHP6 is in the same cave as SHP7, yet it is nearly 3 m.y. younger. We believe that the burial age...

Finkel Abstract We report 26 Al/ 10 Be based ages of Sierra Nevada caves that constrain detailed late Pliocene and Quaternary river incision histories for five river canyons. Rapid incision of ∼0.2 mm/yr from 2.7 to ca. 1.5 Ma slowed markedly to ∼0.03 mm...

... dendrocystitid rather than syringocrinid affinitites. If this interpretation is correct, the Guole solutan may thus represent the oldest known member of the order Dendrocystitida. Finally, several isolated homoiosteles were figured from the Whipple Cave Formation (Furongian, Cambrian Stage 10) of eastern...

... incision rate of ∼0.07 mm/yr throughout most of the Miocene. An increase in incision ca. 6 Ma resulted in the formation of the Kern Canyon. This increase in incision likely occurred in response to east-west delamination of a lithospheric root beneath the southern Sierra Nevada and is reflected in a pulse...

In this scenario, the model predicts that Colorado River integration at 6 Ma initiated the formation of a large (700 m) knickpoint that migrated headward at a rate of 100 km/Ma, resulting in rapid incision of western Grand Canyon down...
