    • 2352 Words
    • 10 Pages

    The Owens Valley is a structural trough that has been dropped down as a graben along regional scale normal faults that separate it structurally from the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the west, and the White Mountains to the east (Pakiser, et al. 1964). Measured at 121 km north to south and it encompasses roughly 1400 square kilometers, the Owens Valley includes such features as hot springs, the basal Bishop Tuff from the Long Valley Caldera eruption which occurred approximately 750,000 years ago (Southworth, 2012), the Poverty Hills, Alabama Hills, and the Owens Valley dry lake bed found on the valley’s southern end. Of particular interest is the Big Pine Volcanic Field which offers great opportunity for relative dating of the Poverty Hills (Fig. 2).

Geologically, the Owens Valley is fairly young, and the valley is documented as being the result of Cenozoic uplift from approximately 5 million years ago (Wakabayashi, et al,…
