(2008; hereafter referred to as Catchings et al.) effectively duplicated our acquisition of a high-resolution seismic reflection profile across a fault scarp near the tip of the Santa Monica fault, one of the major faults in the northern Los Angeles basin. The profiles crossed a distinct topographic scarp, which is one of a series of scarps that indicate the fault extends about 11 km across the northern Los Angeles basin before continuing undersea to the west (Dolan et al., 2000). Based primarily on the seismic-reflection and refraction data, Catchings et al. argued...
