Abstract

A section of the Santa Monica Mountains lying in the eastern third of the Reseda Quadrangle and a portion of the western third of the Van Nuys Quadrangle comprises the geological mapping investigated by this report. The occurrence of a very thick section of pre-Jurassic metamorphic sediment interested the writer to make a study of the rock fracture and cleavage as presented by this section, and the latter part of this report shall be devoted to the results of this study. R. Peterson and the writer chose adjacent areas so as to be able to present a clearer concept of the geologic history of the region. The investigation was carried on in connection with the Senior Problem Course at the California Institute of Technology.

The area can easily be reached by automobile by way of Ventura Boulevard or Mulholland Highway.
