Abstract

Relations between the stream channels and the alluvial deposits along Bradley Creek and the lower part of Butano Creek suggest that the area has been tilted very recently, and localized swampy conditions supply additional supporting evidence. Radiocarbon dates show that some of the valley alluvium along Butano Creek was deposited no more than 750-800 yr ago, and tilting must have Occurred since that time.
