A 1400-ft continuous core from the Inglewood Field in the Los Angeles Basin consists of poorly consolidated sandstones and mudstones that represent deposition in the middle to outer parts of a deep-sea fan. Biostratigraphy indicates that the basin floor remained at lower bathyal depths (>2000 m or 6500 ft) throughout deposition of the cored interval. Both shallow and deep-water microfossils are present in all samples, implying downslope transport of shallow-water fauna to deeper depths as is typical for turbidites.

The core contains several hundred alternating sandstone and mudstone beds that range from less than 0.1 to over 16 ft...
