Literature Cited:
- McGill, Sally F., Stephen G. Wells, Sarah K. Fortner, Heidi Anderson Kuzma, John D. McGill, 2009.

Locations: Koehn Lake.  

Junction: Philips Road, west to Neuralia Road, which leads south to California City.

About 1 1/4 mi to the northwest is the mouth of the informally named Clark Canyon. Here, McGill, et al. (2009) presented a slip-rate estimate for the western Garlock Failt that is constrained by radiocarbon dating. They found that a channel incised into a Latest Pleistocene alluvial fan has been left laterally offset at least 66 6 m and no more than 100 m across the western Garlock fault. This indicates a left-lateral slip rate of 7.6 mm/ yr (95% confidence interval of 5.310.7 mm/ yr). The record of prehistoric earthquakes on the Garlock fault at this site, though quite possibly incomplete, suggests a longer interseismic interval (12002700 yr) for the western Garlock fault than for the central Garlock fault.

To the east, the western portion of the Garlock Fault dips under Koehn Lake. There is an apparent 3.5 km-wide left step in the Garlock Fault that separates the western section from the central section. Koehn Lake occupies the center of a large closed depression that has formed within the 3.5 km-wide dialational stepover in the fault.
