LiDAR and Field Observations of Earthquake Slip Distribution for the Central San Jacinto Fault -- Barrett Salisbury, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University, Advisor Dr. Tom Rockwell -- We mapped the tectonic geomorphology of 80 km of the Clark strand of the San Jacinto fault (SJF) to determine slip per event for the past several surface ruptures. We identify 203 offset features from which we make over 560 measurements using B4 LiDAR imagery,...

Chemical and Physical Characteristics of Pulverized Tejon Lookout Granite Adjacent to the San Andreas and Garlock Faults: Implications for Earthquake Physics: Matthew Sisk, M.S. Candidate, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University - We present new detailed analysis of pulverized Tejon Lookout granite from sections adjacent to the San Andreas and Garlock faults in southern California. The granite is pulverized in all exposures within about 100 m from both faults....

Groundwater and Surface Water Interactions at the Tijuana Estuary, San Diego County, California - The Tijuana Estuary is a unique coastal plain and wetland-dominated estuary influenced by tidal fluctuations and saltwater inflow from the Pacific Ocean and by intermittent freshwater inflow from the Tijuana River. The lower Tijuana River valley, the alluvial river valley that leads into the estuary, collects 96% of runoff in the 4,500 km2 Tijuana River watershed. Stream flow in the Tijuana...

Biotic response of Tethyan bathyal ostracodes through the Eocene-Oligocene Transition from the Massignano Composite Stratotype Section (east central Italy) - The Eocene-Oligocene Transition (EOT) is marked by a double-stepped ~1.3‰ positive excursion in d18O over an ~300 kyr interval (i.e., Oi-1; Miller et al., 1991; Zachos et al., 1996; Coxall et al., 2005) and a deepening of the calcium compensation depth (CCD) interpreted to represent marked Antarctic glaciation and global...
