Abstract

The Sierra de los Cucaras is a long, little dissected cuesta the escarpmental axis of which trends northwestward from the head of the Gulf of California. At the crest overlooking the vast, smooth lowland to the eastward its summital plain is about 4000 feet above tide. On the northeast the uplift rises abruptly out of a widespread desert lying below sea-level, the Mexican extension of the Imperial Valley, recently reclaimed extensively to garden purposes through irrigation.
