Scenario-Based Seismic Loss Estimation for San Diego County, California: Loren Wimmer, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University, Advisor Dr. Steven Day - A study was done to estimate seismic losses to San Diego County, California, and test the sensitivity of those loss estimates to the choice of ground motion model. The scenario chosen was a magnitude 7.1 earthquake on the Rose Canyon Fault Zone. A rupture surface for this scenario was defined following...

Evaluation of XRD and Raman peak broadening in shock-metamorphosed carbonates from selected carbonate-target bolide impact structures: Kean Bliss, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University - Identification of shock metamorphism in minerals is an important line of evidence for confirming the origin of potential impact-generated structures and associated deposits. Unlike common quartz and feldspar occurring in crystalline target rocks, shock-metamorphosed...

Physical and Chemical Characteristics of Unweathered Pulverized Rock along the San Andreas Fault, Little Rock, CA: Emily Allen, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University - We present new observations on pulverized granitic rocks recovered from a shallow core adjacent to the San Andreas fault near Little Rock Creek. The site is characterized by extensive outcrops of granitic rocks with varying degrees of damage, at distances of up to a few hundreds of...

Biotic Response of Ostracodes to the Middle Eocene Climatic Optimum (MECO; 40.0 Ma) in the Southern Indian Ocean (ODP Site 748): Jared Warner, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University - The long-term cooling trend from “greenhouse” to “icehouse” conditions through the middle-to-late Eocene (49.0 – 33.7 Ma) was interrupted by the middle-Eocene Climatic Optimum (MECO; ~40.0 Ma), a transient (~500 kyr) global warming of ~4-6 C° widely recorded in...
