Several papers in this volume deal with the structure beneath the Santa Barbara Channel from opposing view points. These are the thickskinned structural interpretations versus the thin-skinned ones. In the thick-skin interpretations, high angle reverse faults cut the crust to the base of the seismic zone (see Yeats, this volume). In the thin-skinned model these reverse faults are actually active axial surfaces of fault-bend-folds above detachment ramps in the lower crust (see Novoa, this volume). The detachments are necessarily blind, and they do not crop out.
