This part of DS 781 presents data for the faults for the geologic and geomorphic map of the Offshore of Scott Creek map area, California. The vector data file is included in "Faults_OffshoreScottCreek.zip," which is accessible from http://dx.doi.org/10.5066/F7CJ8BJW.The offshore of Scott Creek map area straddles the right-lateral San Gregorio Fault Zone, an important structure in the distributed transform boundary between the North American and Pacific plates (see, for example, Dickinson and others, 2005). Regionally, this fault is part of a system that occurs predominantly in the offshore for about 400 km from Point Conception in the south (where it is known as the Hosgri fault; Johnson and Watt, 2012) to Bolinas...

This part of DS 781 presents data for the folds for the geologic and geomorphic map of the Offshore of Scott Creek map area, California.

This part of DS 781 presents data for the habitat map of the seafloor of the Offshore of Scott Creek map area, California. The vector data file is included in "Habitat_OffshoreScottCreek.zip," which is accessible from http://dx.doi.org/10.5066/F7CJ8BJW.Using multibeam echosounder (MBES) bathymetry and backscatter data, potential marine benthic habitat maps were constructed. The habitats were based on substrate types and documented or "ground truthed" using underwater video images and seafloor samples obtained by the USGS. These maps display various habitat types that range from flat, soft, unconsolidated sediment-covered seafloor to hard, deformed (folded), or highly rugose and differentially eroded bedrock exposures....

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...

This part of DS 781 presents data for the bathymetric contours for several seafloor maps of the Offshore Scott Creek map area, California. The vector data file is included in "Contours_OffshoreScottCreek.zip", which is accessible from http://dx.doi.org/10.5066/F7CJ8BJW.10-m interval contours of the Offshore Scott Creek map area, California, were generated from bathymetry data collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and by California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB). Mapping was completed between 2006 and 2009 using a combination of a 244-kHz Reson 8101 multibeam echosounder and a 234-kHz SEA SWATHplus bathymetric sidescan-sonar system. The mapping missions collected bathymetry data from about the 10-m...
