The seismotectonic pattern determined along a 65-km-wide corridor across the central California Coast Ranges (Dehlinger and Bolt, 1987), from the San Andreas fault to seaward of the Hosgri fault, is used to identify associated structures in the upper crust. The seismogenic zone is approximately 12 km thick in the corridor, and forms a 90-km-wide border zone of the upper Pacific lithospheric plate. This border includes three provinces (from northeast to southwest): the San Andreas fault zone, an adjacent 40- to 50-km-wide seismically quiescent province, and a 40- to 50-km-wide compressive province along the coastline. These provinces are characterized by distinct...
