DanHobley ( talk ) 00:33, 3 August 2010 (UTC) I think it looks great. On the northern slopes the grinding mass of ice streamlined and rounded the profile of the mountain range from base to summit, while on the southern slopes, the glacier plucked fractured rock from the cliff sides, leaving them jagged and precipitous, a dramatic landscape for visitors of the future to view. S. thesis, Wayne State Univ., Detroit, MI. Evidence of the rivers draining the ancestral Sierra Nevada is visible in the canyon walls of drainages produced by the current mountain range.

Geomorphology is the scientific study of the surface of a planet and those processes responsible for forming it. Epicentral parameters for this earthquake as recalculated (Endgahl and Villasenor, 2002) are; 24.81N: 90.72E (thus shifting about 110 km to the west by 55 km to the north), Mw 7.5 and focal depth 15 km. The valleys of Grand Traverse Bay apparently are underlain at their entrance by a dip slope formed on Traverse Group and Dundee Limestone. The field measurements are used to describe the stream type and conditions.

The high seismicity and recent displacements on these faults is almost certainly related to India's continued penetration into China. Glaciers are also depositional because their movement pushes rocks and other debris into new areas. By then, evidence for extensive non-glacial deposits of Quaternary age, such as loess and pluvial lake deposits, was also emerging. Nonglacial geomorphic processes which nevertheless have been conditioned by past glaciation are termed paraglacial processes.

Sea level has risen about 125 to 130 m over about the last 21,000 years (for example, Lambeck and Chappell, 2001; Peltier and Fairbanks, 2006), leading to broadening of the continental shelf, progressive eastward migration of the shoreline and wave-cut platform, and associated transgressive erosion and deposition (for example, Catuneanu, 2006).
