    Cirque, valley, piedmont, and tidewater glaciers are all types of alpine glaciers. Cirque glaciers form in bowl shaped depressions at the head of a valley where snow and ice are often sheltered from sunlight and wind. Valley glaciers form in areas that have been eroded by fluvial systems and can be very long, sometimes extending below snowline. The Paleozoic period lasted about million years, from about million years ago to about million years ago. So much happened during the Paleozoic that it is divided into seven geologic time periods, shown on the red steps of the "Staircase of Time". Many different things happened during each period, but we can only give a summary here. transition to the central Sierra Nevada". Advisors: Dr. E. L. Miller and Dr. T. A. Dumitru. M.S.

ABSTRACT Mixed carbonate‐siliciclastic sediment gravity flow deposits of Late Pennsylvanian to Early Permian age are exposed in the Death Valley ‐ Owens Valley region of east‐central California.

The Mexican Spring unit constitutes the upper part of the Keeler Canyon Formation and is characterized by turbidites, debris flow deposits and megabreccias, all of mixed carbonate‐siliciclastic. A particularly interesting and structurally significant part of the WL-ECSZ is the linear valley system (“East Sierra Valley System” of this report) that has developed along the eastern margin of the southern and central parts of the SN-GVm ().The principal component of this system is the km-long Owens Valley, but it also includes Rose and Indian Wells valleys to the south and Chalfant Author: Calvin H.
