The original time series and cross power data were stored in Binary format on 3.5" disks until further conversion was needed. To convert the time series and cross power data to a format that can be used for modeling, the original binary files were converted to ASCII format using Basic 4.0 code and associated subroutines (see Magnetotelluric_Original-Code_Binary-to-Ascii.txt and Magnetotelluric_Original-Code_Binary-to-Ascii-Subroutines.txt attached to the binary data ScienceBase item). The DaR project used these converted ASCII format files to create the EDI format files included in this data release. The binary data are considered the original data for the magnetotelluric survey, therefore, they are provided with...

This digital map database, compiled from previously published andunpublished data, and new mapping by the authors, represents thegeneral distribution of bedrock and surficial deposits in themapped area. Together with the accompanying text file (ceghmf.ps,ceghmf.pdf, ceghmf.txt), it provides current information on thegeologic structure and stratigraphy of the area covered. Thedatabase delineates map units that are identified by general ageand lithology following the stratigraphic nomenclature of the U.S.Geological Survey. The scale of the source maps limits the spatialresolution (scale) of the database to 1:100,000 or smaller.

The Sawmill Mountain quadrangle is located in the western Transverse Ranges of California, about 10 km west of Frazier Park. It includes Mt. Pinos, Mt. Abel (Cerro Noroeste), a part of the southern San Emigdio Mountains, and straddles an eleven-kilometer reach of the nearly east-west striking "Big Bend" section of the San Andreas Fault.South of the San Andreas Fault, the oldest rocks include undated amphibolite-grade biotite and hornblende-biotite gneiss that is probably early or middle Proterozoic in age. The older gneiss is intruded by strongly deformed and foliated biotite orthogneiss that has an age on biotite of 67.2+0.5 Ma (Late Cretaceous). Several other weakly foliated to massive Late Cretaceous granitic...
Many plate boundary faults, including the San Andreas Fault, appear to slip at unexpectedly low shear stress. One long-standing explanation for a “weak” San Andreas Fault is that fluid release by dehydration reactions during regional metamorphism generates elevated fluid pressures that are localized within the fault, reducing the effective normal stress. We evaluate this hypothesis by calculating realistic fluid production rates for the San Andreas Fault system, and incorporating them into 2-D fluid flow models. Our results show that for a wide range of permeability distributions, fluid sources from crustal dehydration are too small and short-lived to generate, sustain, or localize fluid pressures in the fault sufficient...

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Geology, Geophysics and Geochemistry Science Center (GGGSC) collaborated with the USGS Data at Risk (DaR) team to preserve and release a subset of magnetotelluric data from the San Andreas Fault in Parkfield, California. The San Andreas Fault data were collected by the Branch of Geophysics, a precursor to the now GGGSC, between 1989 and 1994. The magnetotelluric data selected for this preservation project were collected in 1990 using USGS portable truck mounted systems that measure the distribution of electrical conductivity beneath the surface of the earth. Truck mounted systems of this era output data to 3.5” discs, from which data were recovered and transformed to binary or ASCII...

These data provide measures of aseismic slip (creep) at approximately 40 sites located on the San Andreas, Hayward, and Calaveras faults in Central California from Point Pinole located in the San Francisco Bay area to south of Parkfield, California. The earliest measurement of creep followed the 1966 Parkfield earthquake. Currently, we maintain approximately 20 creepmeters and those data are uploaded to the web daily. The data provided at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/monitoring/deformation/data/download/table.php include measurements for sites that have been abandoned. The table provides the location of each creepmeter, and where present, notes that might be relevant to interpreting the data from each instrument.

The Yucaipa 7.5' quadrangle is located at the southeastern margin of the SanBernardino Basin, an extensional region situated within a right-step-over zonebetween the San Jacinto and San Andreas Fault zones. The quadrangle is traversed byseveral faults of the San Andreas system, including (from oldest to youngest) theBanning Fault and the Wilson Creek, Mission Creek, Mill Creek, and San BernardinoStrands of the San Andreas Fault.The Mill Creek Strand of the San Andreas Fault is the easternmost strand of the SanAndreas in the Yucaipa quadrangle. It separates granitic and metamorphic rocks ofthe San Bernardino Mountains block from a thin slice of similar rocks on YucaipaRidge, and thus has only a small amount of strike-slip...

The EDI time series and cross power data were converted from ASCII format using Python-based software developed for this preservation project. The data in EDI format can use magnetotelluric interpretation software to produce models of the resistivity of the measured environment. The metadata in the Info section of the EDI files can be used to convert data to SPUD format, another format used for modelling (Wight, 1988).

The Redlands 7.5' quadrangle is located in the southeastern margin of the San BernardinoBasin, an extensional region situated in a right-step-over zone within the San AndreasFault system. The quadrangle is traversed by several important fault zones, including:(1) northwest-trending right-lateral strike-slip faults of the San Andreas system(Banning Fault, the Mission Creek and San Bernardino Strands of the San Andreas Fault,the San Jacinto Fault); (2) northeast-trending normal dip-slip faults that havedowndropped the San Bernardino Basin; (3) east-trending contractional faults of the SanTimoteo Canyon Fault zone. Some of these faults bound distinctive packages ofcrystalline basement rock.Northwest of the Mission...
