A north-south cross-section across the Santa Barbara Channel between the northwestern end of Santa Rosa Island and the crest of the Santa Ynez Mountains north of Canada de Molino (Plate II) was constructed using previously mapped surface geology, seismic reflection data, and geologic data from exploratory wells and oil and gas accumulations along and near the line of section. It shows Upper Cretaceous through Cenozoic strata dipping toward the Channel from both flanks, gently north from the crest of the Northern Channel Islands anticlinorum on the south, and more steeply southward from the complexly folded and reverse-faulted south flank of the Santa Ynez Mountains on the north.
