Pleistocene Salton Sea Geology
The Salton Sea is one of the few ancient Cenozoic lakes which are remnants of the worldwide flood after it receded from the land in 2348 BC. Then again after the Flood, in the days of Peleg about 1900 BC, there was another shower of asteroids causing a second worldwide earth upheaval, with volcanic eruptions and orogenies (mountain building mega-earthquakes) caused the mountain ranges to form, volcanic eruptions, and megatsunamis waves impacted the coasts worldwide traveling inland for hundreds of miles. Faults caused huge inland lakes to breach their dams and flood areas where faults formed runoff passageways. to the oceans. Large deposits of large terrestrial mammals, marine, and freshwater fossil deposits were formed in mudstone, sand, gravel, caves, bogs, asphalt seeps, sandstone, and shale. Most of these fossils are not petrified like those in the Flood and contain no dinosaurs.
