The ssfb_m1 digital map database, which is compiled from 1970'svintage sources, represents the general distribution and identityof geologic materials in the southern San Francisco Bay region,California, west of the Calaveras fault. It is not a geologic map,because it does not address the geologic structure or thestratigraphic organization of the map units in a systematic way.Instead, it is directed at the distribution and character of thegeologic materials following the pattern of its progenitors,Wentworth and others (1985) and Ellen and Wentworth (in press).Consultation of these reports and the other compilation sources willaid in using the database.
