Summary

This part of DS 781 presents data for the geologic and geomorphic map of the Offshore Santa Cruz map area, California. The vector data file is included in "Geology_OffshoreSantaCruz.zip," which is accessible from http://dx.doi.org/10.5066/F7TM785G.The offshore part of the map area lies south and southwest of the southwest flank of the Santa Cruz Mountains, on the open Pacific Coast and in northwestern Monterey Bay. This offshore area extends from the shoreline across the gently dipping (about 0.7° to 0.8°) continental shelf to water depths of about 75 to 90 m at the outer limit of California's State Waters. The shelf is underlain by Neogene bedrock and a variably thick (as much as 32 m) late Quaternary sediment cover. Sea level has [...]

Purpose

To expand geologic mapping to the seafloor within California's StateWaters, to update coastal geologic mapping, and to contribute to auniform regional geologic database. Additionally, to provide a geologicmap for the public and geoscience community to aid in assessments andmitigation of geologic hazards in the Santa Cruz coastal regionand to provide sufficient geologic information for land-use andland-management decisions both onshore and offshore.This information is not intended for navigational purposes
