      This book is written for the visitor who has an interest in geology, but may not have had formal training in the subject. It may also help ensure that the visiting geologist does not overlook some of the features described. The author, John Bezy, describes the area’s geologic setting and geologic history. Especial emphasis is given to descriptions of geologic features that are.   The rocks in the Santa Catalina Mountains record billion years of history. The publication is written for both the general public and geologists. Take a look and gain an appreciation of that history for when you travel the mountains. Note to readers: I have constructed a linked index to more than of my ADI articles.

Berkeley: University of California Press, Geology - Geology - Petrology: Petrology is the study of rocks, and, because most rocks are composed of minerals, petrology is strongly dependent on mineralogy.

In many respects mineralogy and petrology share the same problems; for example, the physical conditions that prevail (pressure, temperature, time, and presence or absence of water) when particular minerals or mineral assemblages are.

Objectives: We will visit Santa Catalina Island to examine the outstanding examples of basement rock outcrops exposed on the island, evidence of ancient and active faulting, and explore the most recent tectonic models and earthquake potential for the island and.

A generalized geologic history of the southwestern United States Evidence for interpreting the geologic history are deciphered from clues provided by rocks, fossils, and landscape features. Not all rocks in the western region share a common history or formed at the same time or in their current location.

Primary geologic mapping of the Catalina Schist on Santa Catalina Island was performed by Bailey () and Platt (). Although we rely heavily upon Platt's () mapping of the central part of the island, we recognize different tectonometa-morphic units than he did. tectonics, southern California, in Crowell, J.C., ed., The San Andreas fault in southern California, a guide to the San Andreas fault from Mexico to the Carrizo Plain: California Division of Mines and Geology Special Reportp.

It also provides tools to determine the relative and absolute ages of rocks found in a given location, and also to describe the histories of those rocks. By combining these tools, geologists are able to chronicle the geological history of the Earth as a whole, and also to.
