Fly to Point I at the base of a fault scarp near Mount Dome in northeastern California
(also shown in Map T-24 and Figure 36-5). Compare the height of the fault scarp here to
that at Point 2.
What happens to the height of the fault scarp as you move north from Point I to
Point ?? The height of the Gault increased to the Worth
( b )
What might explain this variation in scarp height?
greater Vertizan taut displacement to the worth
Fly to Point 3, near the Gillem Lakes. Based on the surrounding topography, why have
lakes formed here ?

Response) code for this exercise to view the "Exercise 36 Part IV Google EarthTM video." Here you
see the western side of the Wasatch Range near Salt Lake City, Utah. The triangular "facets" along
the mountain front mark the location of the eroded fault plane along which the range was uplifted.
Fly from Point 1 to Point 2, and then to Point 3.
Does the fault along the foot of the range run in a straight line?
) If not, describe its course.

At Point 3, notice that the Valleys between the triangular facets of the mountain front have
been cut down nearly to the level of the basin floor in the foreground. Fly back to Point 1.
Have all the streams along the mountain front near Point 1 cut their valleys down
to the basin floor between the triangular facets? Wo
Why might this, be the case ?
Point I has more recent
and the streams haven't had time to downcut
