Figure 2. Layer A. Shaded relief map showing major Quaternary faults in central Walker Lane, Mina deflection, northern Eastern California shear zone, and western Basin and Range Province. Heavy black arrow in the northwest corner of the map shows the present-day azimuth of motion of the Sierra Nevada block with respect to the central Great Basin (SN-CBG) (Bennett et al., 2003). Fault abbreviations: APHF—Agai Pah Hills fault; BSF—Benton Spring fault; CF—Coaldale fault; CVF—Clayton Valley fault; EIFZ—Eastern Inyo fault zone; EPF—Emigrant Peak fault; FLVFCDV—Fish Lake Valley–Furnace Creek–Death Valley fault zone; GHF—Gumdrop Hills fault; HLF—Honey Lake fault; HMF—Hunter Mountain fault; IHF—Indian Head fault; MVF—Mohawk Valley fault; OF—Olinghouse fault; OVF—Owens Valley fault; PLF—Pyramid Lake fault; PSF—Petrified Spring fault; PVF—Panamint Valley fault; QVF—Queen Valley fault; SLF—Stateline fault; SNFF—Sierra Nevada frontal fault zone; WMF—White Mountains fault zone; WRF—Wassuk Range fault; WSF—Warm Springs fault. Layer B. Geographic names. Layer C. Tectonic domains. Semi-transparent brown shows the Walker Lane–northern Eastern California shear zone. Layer D. Yellow dashed polygon shows the location of the Gabbs Valley–Gillis Ranges (GVGR) field area (see Fig. 3). Layer E. Yellow stars show the locations of documented middle Miocene fault-slip initiation age. Numbers in the stars are tied to numbers in Table 3. Layer F. Thin blue arrows show GPS velocities relative to stable North America (ITRFNA2005 reference frame) from Lifton et al. (2013), and heavy multi-colored arrows show GPS velocities relative to stable North America (NA12 North America reference frame) from Bormann et al. (2016). GPS velocity scales are in the upper right corner of the map. Maps, labels, and data sets for this figure are organized in a series of layers that may be viewed separately or in combination using the capabilities of the Acrobat (PDF) layering function (click “Layers” icon along vertical bar on left side of window for display of available layers; turn layers on or off by clicking the box that encompasses the layer label located within the gray box in the lower left corner of the map).
