The actively deforming Clear Lake basin has been shaped primarily by shear and tensional stresses within the broad San Andreas fault system; and it has been modified both by eruption and subsidence of the Clear Lake Volcanics and by depositional processes. Within the San Andreas fault system, shear has been dominantly right-lateral N35°W to N45°W, and maximum tension dominantly east-west. However, the current local maximum tension deduced from focal-plane solutions is N70°W, representing a secular change of unknown, possibly short duration, that could modify tensional basin-forming processes. The Collayomi fault zone (N45°W) partially bounds the basin on the southwest. The...
