The mapped area was extended to the shoreline by using digital orthophotos to interpret the region between the inner edge of the multibeam bathymetry and the approximate shoreline. The approximate shoreline was generated at the NAVD88 +1.46 m contour, defined as the operational MHW shoreline by Weber and others (2005). The resulting boundary was transformed to WGS 84 UTM Zone 10 North in ArcGIS 10 using the NAD83 to WGS84 (ITRF00) transformation algorithm. This boundary was then used to extend and trim both onshore and offshore geology in the print and PDF product. The transformed boundary is contained within the WGS84 "contours" feature class and identified as a water boundary in the associated representation rules.
Only data for offshore map units are released digitally in this publication. For onshore geology see Blake and others (2002) and Wagner and Gutierrez (2010, and 2017). Quaternary mapping units are as defined by Witter and others (2006) and Wagner and Gutierrez (2010), with unit contacts modified based on analysis of 2003 LiDAR and 2004 IfSAR and data; and additional unpublished mapping by M.W. Manson. San Andreas Fault traces are from Brown and Wolfe (1972), California Geological Survey (1974) and previously unpublished mapping by M.W. Manson.
