Description :
The purpose of this paper is to present surface and subsurface data from several of the basins along the proposed route to evaluate the geomorphic and sedimentologic evidence for this connection. An accurate determination of this connection is important not only to paleogeographic reconstructions of the area, but also to regional paleoclimate studies and the evolution of fish fauna in the Mojave desert.
