This field trip is designed to illustrate the changes that have occurred in the last ten years to the large oil fields in the Los Angeles Basin. In 1973 Truex and others showed the importance of environmental issues when oil fields are developed in an urban setting. A Geologic Field Guide to the Long Beach Area (Clarke and Henderson, 1987) was published in conjunction with the National AAPG meeting in Los Angeles. This guide will build upon update, and complement that work with as little repeat as possible. Wright (1991) gives an excellent overview of the structural geology and tectonic evolution of the Los Angeles Basin.
