Scientific Investigations Map 3002
Significant new mapping during the last two decades has added considerably to understanding the geologic history of the western Transverse and southern Coast Ranges (Vedder and others, 1994, 1995, 2001; Kellogg, 1999, 2003; Kellogg and Miggins, 2002; Minor, 1999, 2004; Stone and Cossette, 2000). Prior to this time, the late Thomas W. Dibblee, Jr. mapped much of the Cuyama 1:100,000 quadrangle. The recent mapping has allowed us to revise some of Dibblee’s interpretations, as well as those of Crowell and others (1964), and to meet the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) publication standard by digitally capturing and converting new data within a Geographic Information System (GIS) designed and published by Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI).
