Abstract

The strata of the San Emigdio Range in southern California were deposited along a shoreline adjacent to a tectonically active highland that formed the southern margin of the San Joaquin Basin. Abundant storm deposits (sandstone and conglomerate) are preserved in the San Emigdio, Pleito, and lower Temblor Formations. Extensive lateral exposures allow recognition of fair-weather and storm-dominated facies in contemporaneous nearshore, inner-shelf, and outer-shelf deposits. -from Author
