...Martin H. Link; T. H. Nilsen Abstract The Rocks Sandstone of Thorup (1941), which crops out in the northern Santa Lucia Range, was deposited as a deep-sea fan in a restricted Eocene continental borderland basin. It is as thick as 640 m and consists primarily of medium-grained sandstone...

... rates of the Santa Lucia Mountains generally vary between ∼0.07 mm/yr and 0.4 mm/yr, with a single drainage basin yielding an erosion rate >0.45 mm/yr. Although the relationship between erosion rate and channel steepness appears poor, statistical tests indicated a significant relationship between...

... pattern of the Umayo Basalt results from the late history of the Puno-Santa Lucia region. Newell (1949 , p. 81) pointed out the important geomorphic effect of normal faulting on the configuration of the Titicaca basin. The Umayo Basalt clearly has been warped and displaced by faults, probably normal...

...K. Jinghwa Hsu ABSTRACT The rocks of the Santa Lucia Range are divisible into a bedrock complex and a superjacent series, separated by a major unconformity which represents early Late Cretaceous deformation (“Santa Lucia orogeny”). Décollement tectonics, involving gravity sliding of the Franciscan...

... shelf-to-basin transitions, as inferred from sedimentary facies relations preserved in uppermost Cretaceous and lower Paleocene strata exposed 70–100 km south of the WCR study area ( Grove 1993 ). In the region of our study, the Santa Lucia Range was more extensively uplifted and stripped of its...

...Nicholas L. Taliaferro ABSTRACT The study of the Cretaceous and Paleocene in the Santa Lucia Range has been of value not only in connection with the sedimentational history of the state but also in deciphering the diastrophic history. Practically all the orogenies that have affected the Coast...

...) constitutes the majority of Cenozoic basin fill. The Potoco overlies the Santa Lucia Formation (50–300 m thick), previously dated as mid-Paleocene by mammal fossils and magnetostratigraphy. New geochronologic data for the Potoco Formation include late Eocene to Oligocene palynomorph assemblages recovered...

The Santa Maria basin is a triangular basin bounded on the north and northeast by the Santa Lucia Range and San Rafael Mountains of the southern Coast Ranges and on the south by the Santa Ynez Mountains of the western Transverse Ranges ( Figures 1 , 2 ). The basin extends westward and northward offshore...
