    The late Cenozoic geology of the Colorado Plateau is relatively unknown compared to that of the earlier epochs and periods. This condition exists despite the great interest in the late geologic history of the Plateau and the Colorado River, an interest that has continued unabated since the days of the early, explorations.

California's Mojave Desert has been adjacent to Tertiary convergent and transform plate margins and its general geology is fairly well known, making it an excellent location for crustal motion studies.

The recorded Cenozoic history of the Mojave Desert region of southern California began in the latest Oligocene, when intense volcanism and tectonism interrupted a long early Tertiary silence.

They consist of metamorphic rocks derived from pre-existing sedimentary, volcanic, and igneous intrusive rocks.

Recent tectonic models for southern California treat the entire Mojave Desert Block as the site of distributed simple shear during late Cenozoic time. These models consider that much of the region is composed of a series of narrow blocks, bounded by active NW striking, right-slip faults that have facilitated the distortion and rotation of the.

Seventeen ancient wood-rat middens, ranging in radiocarbon age from to 19, years and to older t years, have been uncovered in the northeastern, north-central, southeastern, and southwestern sectors of the Mohave Desert.

Introduction to Desert Geology Once Upon A Time It is hard to imagine that during the Paleozoic Era ( – million years ago) much of the American Southwest was covered by shallow seas.

However, fossil impressions of marine creatures in limestone and dolomite reveal the ancient beginnings of many sedimentary rocks. Throughout this period, fluctuating seas deposited.

The broad network of faults of the Mojave Desert Block along with similar strike‐slip faults of the Death Valley region constitute a regional zone of right shear, named here, the Eastern California shear by: a sediment-flux-driven model, to test hypotheses for the fluvial Cenozoic geomorphic evolution and surface uplift history of the southern Sierra Nevada.

Its constant evolution over the millennia since its inception has made the Earth a dynamic entity, subject to numerous climactic and environmental forces that are forever changing this planet. In its most recent stage, the planet has seen an incredible diversification in plant and animal life, with the most prominent development of the Cenozoic era being the emergence of.

The Death Valley region, of southeast California and southwest Nevada, is distinct relative to adjacent regions in its structural style and resulting topography, as well as in the timing of basin-range extension.
