This study documents the deformation history of the Santa Rita Flat pluton, eastern California, from the time of emplacement to post-emplacement transpressional shearing, and consists of manuscripts that make up three chapters. The first chapter addresses the emplacement of the Santa Rita Flat pluton using anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS). The second chapter describes the kinematic analysis of cross-cutting shear zones within the western margin of the pluton. The third chapter is an… 
Emplacement of the Santa Rita Flat pluton as a pluton-scale saddle reef
Regional mapping indicates that the Middle Jurassic Santa Rita Flat pluton, exposed in the Inyo Range of eastern California, is situated within the core of a south-plunging synform defined by bedding
Internal structure and emplacement of the Papoose Flat pluton: An integrated structural, petrographic, and magnetic susceptibility study
The Papoose Flat pluton of eastern California is commonly cited in the geologic literature as a classic example of a “forcibly” emplaced pluton, although the relative importance attributed to
Geometry, kinematics and age of the northern half of the White Mountain shear zone, eastern California and Nevada
The White Mountain shear zone (WMSZ) is a zone of intense penetrative deformation that lies along the western front of the northern White-Inyo Range in eastern-most California and western-most
Field mapping, geomorphologic, paleoseismologic, geochronologic, and geodetic data indicate active faulting across Owens Valley. The Owens Valley and Sierra Nevada frontal fault zones form a paired
Making Space for Batholiths by Extrusion of Sub-Batholithic Crust
The long-standing space problem in the emplacement of orogenic batholiths may be solved by large-scale intracrustal flow toward the backarc, driven by the isostatic load of the batholith and its
Active tectonics of the eastern California shear zone
The eastern California shear zone is an important component of the Pacifi c–North America plate boundary. This region of active, predominantly strike-slip, deformation east of the San Andreas fault


The Santa Rita Shear Zone: Major Mesozoic deformation along the western flank of the White-Inyo Range, CA
The Santa Rita Shear Zone (SRSZ), briefly described by Ross (1967), deforms the western part of the 164 Ma Santa Rita Flat pluton (SRFP), located SSE of Big Pine, CA. The SRSZ comprises a subvertical
Transpressional shearing and strike‐slip partitioning in the Late Cretaceous Sierra Nevada magmatic arc, California
The Rosy Finch shear zone (RFSZ) represents an example of synmagmatic, strike‐slip tectonics in the east central Sierra Nevada and provides information on transpressional tectonics within magmatic
The Gem Lake shear zone: Cretaceous dextral transpression in the Northern Ritter Range pendant, eastern Sierra Nevada, California
The Gem Lake shear zone is a northwest striking, steeply dipping, dextral transpressional shear zone that provides the first direct evidence for dextral deformation in wall-rock pendants in the
Southern extension of the Independence dike swarm of eastern California
New geochronologic data show that Jurassic dikes in the western Mojave Desert and Eastern Transverse Ranges are part of the Independence dike swarm of eastern California .These occurrences extend the
Uranium-lead isotopic ages from the Sierra Nevada Batholith, California
This study provides new information on the timing and distribution of Mesozoic magmatic events in the Sierra Nevada batholithic complex chiefly between 36° and 37°N. latitude. U-Pb ages have been
Structural evolution of the Alaska Juneau lode gold deposit, southeastern Alaska
The Alaska Juneau lode gold deposit is hosted by a series of polydeformed Permian to Late Triassic volcanic, pelitic, volcaniclastic, and mafic intrusive rocks. Rocks in the mine area have been
