Summary

This part of DS 781 presents data for the geologic and geomorphic map of the Offshore of Monterey map area, California. The vector data file is included in "Geology_OffshoreMonterey.zip," which is accessible from http://dx.doi.org/10.3133/ofr20161110. The offshore part of the Offshore of Monterey map area contains two geomorphic regions—(1) the continental shelf, and (2) Carmel Canyon and its tributaries (part of the “Offshore Monterey system” of Greene and others (2002)). The relatively flat continental shelf in the Offshore of Monterey map area consists of exposed bedrock or bedrock overlain by only a thin (< 5 m) cover of sediment). The thickest sediment in the map area (about 16 m) occurs in a broad depression about 2 km north [...]

Purpose

To expand geologic mapping to the seafloor within California's State Waters, to update coastal geologic mapping, and to contribute to a uniform regional geologic database. Additionally, to provide a geologic map for the public and geoscience community to aid in assessments and mitigation of geologic hazards in the Monterey coastal region and to provide sufficient geologic information for land-use and land-management decisions both onshore and offshore. This information is not intended for navigational purposes.
