Platt. The tl;dr is that this is an amazing book about amazing geology. It is a great textbook for non specialized intro college courses, high school earth science electives, etc. but it is also a great read and reference book for science-oriented Californians. There are field guides to the geological sites in California, /5(8).

An evaluation of the geologic hazards of the inner California Borderland requires determination of the timing for faulting and mass-movement episodes during the Holocene.

Our effort focused on basin slopes and turbidite systems on the basin floors for the area between Santa Barbara and San Diego, California. California borderland geology The geologic history of the region offshore of Southern California is poorly understood. Its interpretation is complicated by the fact that it is largely submerged, is heavily sedimented, and many of the rocks from which interpretations have been made were probably erratics transported offshore from continental beaches tangled in kelp holdfasts, in tree roots, or in sea lion stomachs.

More than half of the submarine fans in the Borderland remain active at any given position of relative sea level. Where Aspects of the geologic history of the California continental borderland book continental shelf is narrow, canyons are able to cut headward during sea-level transgression and maintain sediment supply to the basins from rivers and longshore currents during highstands.

The Continental Borderland of Southern California stretches from the coastline to the Patton Escarpment (Figure ). In Southern California, the Borderland reaches its maximum width of more than km.

This geographic region--known as the Southern California Bight—consists of a complex array of northwest-trending basins, ridges and banks.
