General distribution of geologic materials in the southern San Francisco Bay region, California: A digital map database

The ssfb_m1 digital map database, which is compiled from 1970's vintage sources, represents the general distribution and identity of geologic materials in the southern San Francisco Bay region, California, west of the Calaveras fault. It is not a geol

The Surface of Crystalline Basement, Great Valley and Sierra Nevada, California: A Digital Map Database

Crystalline basement in central California extends westward from the exposed Sierra Nevada beneath the sedimentary fill of the Great Valley and under the eastern edge of the Coast Ranges at mid-crustal depth. The surface of this basement is defined from t

San Francisco Bay region landslide folio part C - Summary distribution of slides and earth flows in the San Francisco Bay region, California

The distribution of landslides evident in the landscape -- most of which are slumps, translational slides, and earth flows -- is of interest both for evaluation of hazard and risk and for use in further study of landslides. Future movement of such landsli

Preliminary Geologic Description of the San Jose 30 X 60 Minute Quadrangle, California: A Digital Database

The San Jose 30 x 60-minute quadrangle straddles the California Coast Ranges southeast of San Francisco, and extends from west of the San Andreas fault near Santa Cruz on the southwest (long. -122°, lat. 37°) to the San Joaquin River in the Central Vall

Geologic map of Santa Cruz county, California: A digital database

This Open-File report is a digital geologic map database. This digital map database is prepared from a previously published map by Brabb (1989). The geologic map database delineates map units that are identified by general age, lithology and clast size

San Francisco Bay Region landslide folio part E - Map of debris-flow source areas in the San Francisco Bay region, California

This map identifies the principal areas in the San Francisco Bay region that are likely to produce debris flows, which are also called "mudslides." Debris flows that occur in the bay region are fast-moving downslope flows of mud that may include rocks,

Preliminary maps of Quaternary deposits and liquefaction susceptibility, nine-county San Francisco Bay region, California: a digital database

This report presents a preliminary map and database of Quaternary deposits and liquefaction susceptibility for the nine-county San Francisco Bay region, together with a digital compendium of ground effects associated with past earthquakes in the region. T

Preliminary quaternary geologic maps of Santa Clara Valley, Santa Clara, Alameda, and San Mateo counties, California: A digital database

This digital map database, which is compiled from previously unpublished and open-filed U.S. Geol. Survey reports (Wesling and Helley, 1989), represents the general distribution and identity of Quaternary deposits in eight 7.5 minute quadrangles in the

Regional geologic map of San Andreas and related faults in Carrizo Plain, Temblor, Caliente and La Panza Ranges and vicinity, California: A digital database

This digital map database is prepared from a previously published map by Dibblee (1973). The geologic map database delineates map units that are identified by general age, lithology, and clast size following the stratigraphic nomenclature of the U.S. Geol

Geologic maps and structure sections of the southwestern Santa Clara Valley and southern Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties, California

This digital map database, compiled from previously published and unpublished data, and new mapping by the authors, represents the general distribution of bedrock and surficial deposits in the mapped area. Together with the accompanying text file (scvmf.
