The Santa Barbara Channel basin, located in southern California, is undergoing significant shortening. We use contour and axial surface maps of several horizons and balance regional cross sections through the eastern and western Santa Barbara Channel, as well as structural profiles and surface restoration techniques, to analyze how the subsurface structures in this basin accommodate the deformation. Reflection seismic profiles show that some of the mapped structures are active (e.g. the Oak Ridge, the Blue Bottle, the Pitas Point, the Dos Cuadras, the Carpinteria and the Santa Rosa trends) and accommodate a large part of the shortening, whereas others...
