Field Trip Day 1
Field Trip Stop 1-7, "Poverty Hills," of the 2009 Desert Symposium. Two models have been proposed for the origin of the Poverty Hills. The most recent model during the past couple of decades suggests the hills are a tectonic uplift created by horizontal shortening at a left step in the right-lateral Owens Valley fault zone. A recently advocated second model suggests the hills are a landslide mass derived from the Inyo Mountains, although the landslide model was first suggested in the 1960s, based on a gravity survey of the valley (Reynolds and Jessey, 2009).
