A Coast to Explore
Coastal Geology and Ecology of Central CaliforniaBook - 2010
The goal of this book is to introduce readers to the natural setting of the shoreline of Central California. It concentrates on the outer shoreline omitting only San Francisco Bay because of its complexity. Starting in the north with Bodega Head and tracing the San Andreas Fault Valley it travels south through the familiar Point Reyes, San Francsico Outer Shore, Monterey Bay, and Big Sur areas to the lesser-known geomorphologic areas of the Central Headland and South Bays in Santa Barbara County. With over 183 illustrations (most in full color) it offers the most comprehensive view of what earth science and satellite images can offer to the curious reader or traveler exploring this breathtaking coastline.
