Thumbnail of and link to report PDF (500 kB)Abstract

This report includes a map and three tables that summarize available information on the locations and ages of late Oligocene to middle Miocene volcanic centers in coastal California. This information, in turn, provides supporting documentation for a planned formal publication by D.S. Wilson, P.A. McCrory, and R.G. Stanley on the implications of volcanism in coastal California for the tectonic history of western North America.
