    31. 31. A Doppler radar is a specialized radar that makes use of the Doppler effect to producevelocity data about objects at a distance. It does this by beaming a microwave signaltowards a desired target and listening for its reflection, then analyzing how thefrequency of the returned signal has been altered by the objects motion. This variationgives direct and highly accurate measurements of the radial component of a targetsvelocity relative to the radar.
    32. 32. Garlock FaultThe Garlock Fault is a left-lateral strike-slip fault running approximately northeast-southwest along the north margins of the Mojave Desert ofSouthern California. It runs for much of its length along the southern base of the Tehachapi Mountains.

    34. 34. O W E N S D RY L A K EOwens held significant water until 1924, until much of the Owens River was diverted into the Los AngelesAqueduct, causing it to desiccate. Today, some of the flow of the river has been restored, and the lake now containssome water.
