Abstract

Parts of the escarpment are notched by box canyons that have extremely steep headwalls and may be sites of active ground water sapping. The intercanyon areas commonly have previously unrecognized terraces below 2600 m. Above 2600 m, the escarpment is steeper and has no terraces. The terraces may reflect differences in platform strata exposed at the escarpment that are responding differently to erosional processes. -from Authors
