Distribution, Recurrence, and Possible Tectonic Implications of Late Quaternary Faulting in Arizona
Probable quaternary faults in Arizona have been mapped by systematic interpretation of aerial photographs, extensive geomorphic field studies, and compilation of previous work. Greatest concentrations of late Quaternary normal faults are found near the Colorado Plateau margin in northwestern and north-central Arizona, with lesser concentrations in central and southeastern Arizona and the Lake Mead area. Late Quaternary faults are rare in southwestern Arizona and none have been recognized in the interior of the Colorado Plateau province in northeastern Arizona.
