Geomorphic and cosmogenic nuclide constraints on escarpment evolution in an intraplate setting, Darling Escarpment, Western Australia

Sarah, Jakica; Quigley, Mark C.; Sandiford, Michael. A; Clark, Dan; Fifield, L Keith; Alimanovic, Abaz


The ~900km long Darling Scarp in Western Australia is one of the most prominent linear topographic features on Earth. Despite the presence of over-steepened reaches in all westerly flowing streams crossing the scarp, and significant seismic activity within 100km of the scarp, there is no historical seismicity and no reported evidence for Quaternary tectonic displacements on the underlying Darling Fault. Consequently, it is unclear whether the scarp is a rapidly evolving landform responding to...[Show more]
