Summary

This part of DS 781 presents data for the geologic and geomorphic map of the Offshore of Scott Creek map area, California. The vector data file is included in "Geology_OffshoreScottCreek.zip," which is accessible from http://dx.doi.org/10.5066/F7CJ8BJW.The offshore part of the map area lies southwest of the southwest flank of the Santa Cruz Mountains, extending from the shoreline to water depths of about 60 to 75 m on the gently dipping (about 0.6° to 0.8°) continental shelf. The shelf is underlain by Neogene bedrock and a variably thick (as much as 24 m) late Quaternary sediment cover. Sea level has risen 120 to 130 m over about the last 21,000 years (for example, Stanford and others, 2011), leading to broadening of the continental [...]

Purpose

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