Nine land surface levels occurring in the Truckee River Valley between Reno and Verdi, Nevada have been studied. The kinds of soils associated with the vertical sequence of land surfaces appears to be related to duration of weathering, thus landscape stability is implied. The sequence of surfaces indicates that episodic erosion has occurred in the area during the entire Quaternary.
