The purpose of this project is to study the tectonic evolution of San Pedro Basin (Fig. 1), offshore Southern California, using high-resolution seismic reflection data. San Pedro Basin has the morphology of a pull-apart basin.

However, a regional fault, the San Pedro Basin fault, cuts across the basin, a characteristic unusual for a pull-apart basin.
