Equipment Used
To observe and sample stratigraphic sections displaced along active
fault scarps and to evaluate the use of a free deep diving vehicle in
studies of offshore faulting.
Five DSRV Alvin dives were made on fault and fault-line scarps
associated with the Rose Canyon-Newport-Inglewood, Coronado Bank-Palos Verdes
Hills, and San Clemente Fault zones, to investigate the character and recency of
faulting of a tectonically active portion of the Southern California Continental
Margin. A total of 36 outcrop and 14 sediemnt core samples were collected during
the five dives. An  effort was made to collect these samples in orderly
stratigraphic  succession.
