Estimation of Lateral Variations of the Mohorovičić Discontinuity Using 2D Modeling of Receiver Functions Rumi Takedatsu Advisor Dr. Kim Bak Olsen ABSTRACT We have used 2D finite difference modeling to examine the efficacy of estimating a relatively abrupt offset (>~35o) in Moho depth with a slant-stacking technique (Zhu and Kanamori 2000) from radial 0-2Hz P-wave receiver functions (RFs) at a single or a few closely-spaced stations. In particular, we have examined the advantage...

Timing And Style Of Miocene Deformation, Indian Pass And Picacho State Recreation Area, SE California, U.S.A. Krista Muela Advisor Dr. Gary Girty ABSTRACT The Chocolate Mountains anticlinorium is a complex structure extending from the San Andreas fault on the west to south-central Arizona on the east. It is well exposed between Indian Pass and Picacho State Recreation Area, SE California, where Neogene rocks reveal a complex record of Paleogene to early Miocene extension followed by...

Stratigraphy and petrologic evolution of the Oligocene-Miocene Comondú Group near Bahia Concepcion and Loreto, Baja California Sur, México Nicholas Godinez Advisor Dr. David Kimbrough ABSTRACT The Comondú Group of Baja California Sur, Mexico comprises extensive Oligocene to middle Miocene forearc basin and volcanic arc deposits that formed immediately prior to plate boundary reorganization and rifting that opened the Gulf of California. This study contributes new whole rock X-ray...

Geophysical imaging of the San Andreas Fault damage zone near Little Rock, California Esteban Bowles-Martinez Advisor Dr. Thomas Rockwell ABSTRACT New gravity, DC resistivity, and seismic refraction data image the damage zone surrounding the San Andreas Fault (SAF) near Little Rock, California. Analysis of these new data shows a decrease in electrical resistivity and seismic velocity in granitoids near the fault, which is interpreted as increased damage, with more damage on the...

Weathering characteristics within the zone of precariously balanced rocks in Southern California: a probabilistic approach to analyzing corestone-saprock development Crystal Replogle Advisor Dr. Gary Girty ABSTRACT The development of dilatational volumetric strain in saprock from plutonic corestone near strike-slip faults, such as the Elsinore and San Jacinto faults in southern California, may be related to ground shaking during earthquakes. The saprock formation process has previously...
