Gravity and aeromagnetic maps along the eastern most fault system

Detailed Description

Simplified geologic, gravity, and aeromagnetic maps of the eastern most fault of the Eastern California Shear Zone showing the locations and geometries of pull-apart basins. The locations, shapes and sizes of these basins provide constraint on fault step-overs and total offset along the Soda-Avawatz - Bristol-Granite Mountains Fault Zone. Red lines - faults; dashed blue lines - playas; dark blue lines - 0.5 km contours of basin thickness; plus signs - locations of maximum horizontal gradients, with smaller symbols denoting gradient values below the mean value and larger symbols denoting gradient values above the mean value.
