Regional spatial variation patterns in igneous emplacement pressures, initial 87Sr/86Sr (Sri) values, zircon U/Pb ages, and pluton bulk compositions of the Sierra Nevada batholith are disrupted by the ~130-km-long proto–Kern Canyon fault, a Late Cretaceous ductile shear zone in the southern Sierra Nevada batholith. Vertical displacement and horizontal shortening across the proto–Kern Canyon fault in its early history are roughly constrained by the disruption of a regional primary batholithic structure that is recorded in petrologic and geochemical spatial variation patterns. The disruption of these patterns suggests that the proto–Kern Canyon fault underwent (1) subvertical west-directed...
