Shallow subsurface geology of the continental shelf , Gulf of the Farallones , California , and its relationship to surficial seafloor characteristics

The Gulf of the Farallones is located on a continental margin that is tectonically active and has experienced eustatic fluctuations of sea level throughout the Quaternary. Bathymetry of the Gulf suggests that it is different from the average continental shelf off California in that instead of a seafloor that slopes gently seaward from the shoreline to the… (More)
