Abstract:
This part of DS 781 presents fault data for the geologic and geomorphic map of the Monterey Canyon and Vicinity map area, California. The vector data file is included in "Faults_MontereyCanyon.zip," which is accessible from http://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/781/MontereyCanyon/data_catalog_MontereyCanyon.html. These data accompany the pamphlet and map sheets of Dartnell, P., Maier, K.L., Erdey, M.D., Dieter, B.E., Golden, N.E., Johnson, S.Y., Hartwell, S.R., Cochrane, G.R., Ritchie, A.C., Finlayson, D.P., Kvitek, R.G., Sliter, R.W., Greene, H.G., Davenport, C.W., Endris, C.A., and Krigsman, L.M. (P. Dartnell and S.A. Cochran, eds.), 2016, California State Waters Map Series—Monterey Canyon and Vicinity, California: U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 2016–1072, 48 p., 10 sheets, scale 1:24,000, http://dx.doi.org/10.3133/ofr20161072.
Faults in the Monterey Canyon and Vicinity map area are identified on seismic-reflection data based on abrupt truncation or warping of reflections and (or) juxtaposition of reflection panels with different seismic parameters such as reflection presence, amplitude, frequency, geometry, continuity, and vertical sequence. Faults were primarily mapped by interpretation of seismic reflection profile data from USGS field activities S–N1–09–MB and S–6–11–MB. The seismic reflection profiles were collected in 2009 and 2011.
Purpose:
To expand geologic mapping to the seafloor within the California's State Waters, to update coastal geologic mapping, and to contribute to a uniform regional geologic database. Additionally, to provide a geologic map for the public and geoscience community to aid in assessments and mitigation of geologic hazards in the Monterey Bay and Vicinity region and to provide sufficient geologic information for land-use and land-management decisions both onshore and offshore.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Map elements were visually checked for overshoots, undershoots, duplicate features, and other errors by the lead authors and by the GIS technician(s) who created the digital database. Review drafts of the map were reviewed internally by at least two other geologists for consistency with basic geologic principles and general conformity to USGS mapping standards.
Completeness_Report:
Data are complete. No offshore features that could be accurately identified and represented at the compilation scale of 1:24,000 were eliminated or generalized. The smallest area represented is approximately 100 square meters. All geospatial database elements are attributed.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Faults were primarily mapped by interpretation of seismic reflection profile data. Faults lines were digitized by heads-up screen digitization on to shot-point picks from seismic-line navigation data - each shot point has an associated lat/long in the survey data. Error is introduced from layback, as well as from interpretation of oblique features, so horizontal accuracy of fault location is estimated to be on the order of 10 to 20 meters.
