Abstract

Comparison of landforms in adjacent watersheds shows stripped forms in lower Fresno Creek basin and alluvial forms in Lajitas basin. The hypothesis is presented that these landforms resulted from a sequence of stream captures in which Lajitas drainage diverted headwaters of Terlingua Creek, and that later capture of the same headwaters by Fresno Creek established modern drainage lines. Interpretation of the evidence shows that physical features of each basin result from specific factors, including stream energy, within each stream system.
