While these events are well known, it is unclear how the perturbed communities will respond to further assaults. Here, we describe th . . .
ArticleClimate-controlled landscape evolution in the Western Transverse Ranges, California: Insights from Quaternary geochronology of the Saugus Formation and strath terrace flightsDeVecchio, DuaneThe Las Posas and Ojai Valleys, located in the actively deforming Western Transverse Ranges of California, contain well-preserved flights of strath terraces and Quaternary strata (i.e., Saugus Formation) that when numerically dated elucidate the tecto . . .
