Geologic, geophysical, and paleomagnetic data suggest that major lithologic belts which now make up the outer California Continental Borderland and western Transverse Ranges were disrupted from their original geographic and tectonic setting off northern Baja California. Disruption began in the early Miocene and is closely linked to a change in relative plate motions from subduction to right-lateral strike-slip (transform) motion along the southern California—Baja California continental margin… CONTINUE READING
