Quaternary uplift astride the aseismic Cocos Ridge, Pacific coast, Costa Rica
The Pacific coast of Costa Rica lies within the Central American forearc and magmatic-arc region that was created by northeastward subduction of the Cocos plate beneath the Caribbean plate at the
Fire and vegetation history on Santa Rosa Island, Channel Islands, and long‐term environmental change in southern California
The long‐term history of vegetation and fire was investigated at two locations – Soledad Pond (275 m; from ca. 12 000 cal. a BP) and Abalone Rocks Marsh (0 m; from ca. 7000 cal. a BP) – on Santa Rosa

The Volcanic Tableland, brittle surface of the 764,000 yr-old Bishop Tuff, documents extensive faulting in the northern Owens Valley, California, during the late Quaternary. The Tableland surface is
Late Quaternary slip on the Santa Cruz Island fault, California
The style, timing, and pattern of slip on the Santa Cruz Island fault were investigated by trenching the fault and by analysis of offset late Quaternary landforms. A trench excavated across the fault
