Marine seismic reflection data are used to image and map sedimentary and 
structural features of the seafloor and subsurface. These data were acquired in 
in the offshore areas between Cayucos and Pismo Beach from the nearshore (~6 m 
depth) to just west of the Hosgri Fault Zone, in support of the California State 
Waters Mapping Program and the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement 
(CRADA) between Pacific Gas & Electric Company and the U.S. Geological Survey. 
The specific objective of this seismic survey is to provide seismic reflection 
images and magnetic anomaly maps of the depositional geometry of the upper 50 m 
of subbottom stratigraphy in order to better understand the mechanisms of 
sediment transport and deposition. Another objective of the survey is to 
identify offsets in sedimentary strata and basement rocks to characterize 
important fault properties. These seismic profiles provide high-quality images 
with approximately 1 m of vertical resolution and up to 120 m of subbottom 
planned activity; 9 days
