This work includes new interpretations of shallow offshore geologic structure between Point Arguello and the Santa Maria River within California’s 3-mi coastal limit. These interpretations are based on multi-sensor high-resolution seismic reflection data collected during January and February 1986.

Water depths within the survey area range from 16 m (50 ft) nearshore to 70 m (230 ft) 3 mi west of Point Arguello. The sea floor slopes between 0.3 and 0.5° south-westward. The thickness of unconsolidated Quaternary sediment in the survey area ranges from 0 (bedrock outcrop) to almost 50 m (165 ft) off Point Arguello.

The survey area crosses...
