Field Study of the San Andreas Fault: San Bernardino to Mecca Hills

Course Number: GEO X440.3

1 units

A companion to Geo. X440.2, Field Study of the San Andreas Fault: San Bernardino to Palmdale (which is not a prerequisite course), tracing prominent surficial features along the fault southward to the Salton Sea area. Stops begin around San Bernardino to observe the relationship between urbanization and fault location and then continue southward through the desert to note such features as shutter ridges, offset streams and anomalous vegetation. The course concludes at the picturesque Mecca Hills, where deformation along the San Andreas has produced wildly tilted rock layers. No previous knowledge of geology is required.
