...GREGORY F. RZONCA; HOWARD A. SPELLMAN; EDWARD W. FALL; ROY J. SHLEMON Abstract The Malibu Coast Fault Zone (MCFZ) is a major tectonic element in southern California that was heretofore considered to be “nonactive” according to State of California criteria. However, our recent investigations...

The detachment breaks through to the surface at the Point Dume–Malibu Coast fault zone and the Red Mountain–San Cayetano...

... that the Escondido thrust necessarily would be of a different age from the other proposed detachment faults, as the faulting would involve the upper Miocene. Lamar (1961) has demonstrated 7 mi (11.3 km) of left-lateral movement on the Malibu Coast fault zone in the Santa Monica area since the Mohnian...

... to be on the order of only 60 km, substantially less than required to compensate for the 250 km involved in the opening of the Gulf of California during the past 5 m.y. If the Pinto Mountain fault is the eastern equivalent of the Malibu Coast–Cucamonga fault zone, essentially no right-lateral slip occurred...

... Ranges Province is bounded on the south by the Malibu Coast–Cucamonga fault zone. At and just east of the San Jacinto fault, the southern boundary fault zone is displaced by faulting 30 to 40 km to the southeast, and is continued as the Banning fault.

... related faults. The eastern Santa Barbara Basin is deformed by large active reverse and thrust faults, and this area appears to be underlain regionally by the north-dipping Channel Islands thrust fault. These faults could produce moderate to strong earthquakes and destructive tsunamis. On the Malibu...

In contrast to the granite and slate basement north of the Malibu Coast fault, basement rocks south of the fault are made up of Catalina...

The Malibu Coast fault zone is particularly significant to the Los Angeles basin in that it cuts off two of the other major fault zones of the basin, the Newport-Inglewood and the Whittier fault.
