T22D - Geology and Geodynamics of the San Francisco Bay Area I
Other Events

In the San Francisco Bay Area, plate boundary deformation accommodated along the San Andreas Fault System, comprising multiple active faults, and surface processes such as landslides, fluvial erosion, and deposition work together to shape the multifaceted landscape. The geometry and properties of the active San Andreas Fault System, as well as the landslide and erosion patterns in the region, are strongly affected by the Mesozoic subduction history which formed the underlying bedrock and predecessors to the present-day fault system. This session addresses how the integrated geological history of the bedrock impacts the modern geodynamic and landscape processes. We invite studies that can the contribute to an interdisciplinary session addressing the interrelationships between the bedrock geologic history, active faults, hydrogeology, environmental geology, surface processes and engineering geology of the Bay Area and surrounding coastal California areas.
