Abstract

Along the earthquake-prone coastal area of north-central California, geologists are searching for criteria to establish the nature, extent, and rate of crustal movement or deformation that may be related to activity along known or postulated faults. This search has led to a study of marine terraces along the coast between San Francisco and Santa Cruz in the area that is transected by the Seal Cove-San Gregorio-Palo Colorado fault, a branch of the San Andreas fault system.
