Data were acquired to support USGS geologic hazards projects to aide hazard assessment and geologic structure mapping of southern California’s offshore Catalina, Catalina Ridge, San Clemente, and San Diego Trough Fault Zones. These data were collected to update the USGS Quaternary fault database and shaking hazard models developed by the Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities. In addition, the survey imaged a large landslide complex in Santa Cruz Basin in order to determine causes and age of seafloor failure. Data collection was funded in part by UC Student Ship Funds. Chirp sub-bottom data were collected coincidentally. These data and information are intended for science researchers, students from elementary through college, policy makers, and general public.
