Abstract

Geology of a part of Seminole quadrangle, Los Angeles County, California:

A small area in the Central Santa Monica Mountains was mapped. Two formations, a series of interbedded basalts and pyroelastics of Topanga age and some Modelo shales and sandstones, were mapped and an angular unconformity was found between them. The region is one of broad folds with axes trending generally east-west.

Geology of the Bluff Cove Region, Palos Verdes, Southern California:

About two miles of sea cliffs were examined at the west end of the Palos Verdes Hills, in southern California. Middle and lower upper Miocene breccia, sandstone, and shale have been intruded by sills of basalt. Faulting and minor folding have taken place since the intrusion. Successive terraces indicate repeated uplift in Pleistocene time.
