Abstract

The region considered in this report is shown on the north-west portion of the Lang Quadrangle, (Edition of 1933, scale 1/24,000) and the north-east portion of the Humphreys Quadrangle, (Edition of 1932, scale 1/24,000). The region is approximately 45 miles north of Los Angeles and therefore lies in the Coast Range Province. The area mapped is a portion of a synclinal basin extending east-west and lying between the San Gabriel Mountains to the south and the upthrown blocks bordering the San Andreas Fault to the north. See map, fig. 1, page 2. On the map, the San Andreas Fault is well indicated by a series of roads traveling in the fault-trough, shown in the upper right-hand portion joining Sandbergs and Palmdale.
