Estimating earthquake frequency and patterns in the Puget Lowland

upstream along the Gunnison and Uncompahgre River systems resulting in at least one additional stream capture event. Stream piracy effects must be evaluated carefully in order to formulate accurate interpretations of landscape evolution.


Aftermath of a stream capture: Cactus Park lake spillover and the origin of East Creek, Uncompahgre Plateau, western Colorado
William C. Hood et al., Grand Junction Geological Society, 515 Dove Court, Grand Junction, Colorado 81507, USA. Published online 13 May 2014; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/GES00970.1. Special series: CRevolution 2: Origin and Evolution of the Colorado River System II.

This paper describes how an ancient lake formed high on the flanks of the Uncompahgre Plateau in western Colorado. The lake formed in Cactus Park, a tributary valley to Unaweep Canyon and existed about 800,000 years ago. Overflow from this lake led to the development of East Creek and deflected the Gunnison River eastward. These long-ago events have exerted a strong influence on the modern landscape.


Karst piracy: A mechanism for integrating the Colorado River across the Kaibab uplift, Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA
Carol A. Hill and Victor J. Polyak, Earth and Planetary Sciences, University of New Mexico, 200 Yale Boulevard, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87131, USA. Published online 25 June 2014; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/GES00940.1. Special series: Crevolution 2: Origin and Evolution of the Colorado River System II.

In this paper, a karst piracy mechanism is proposed to explain how the Colorado River crossed the Kaibab uplift topographic high: it went under the uplift, thus hydrologically connecting the east side of the canyon with the west side. A karst connection at five to six million years ago not only caused the headward erosion of
