The Gulf of California is an excellent laboratory for studying sedimentary processes on time scales that are not resolvable in the open ocean. The high biological productivity and the unique physical character of the gulf combine to produce sedimentological processes that preserve annual phenomena.

In the peninsula of Baja California, two main active fault systems are recognized—the Agua Blanca fault, which is oriented anomalously counterclockwise to the general trends of the southern San Andreas fault system, and the San Miguel-Vallecitos faults, which extend from the Sierra de Juarez escarpment toward the Tijuana-San Diego area.

The Californias (Spanish: Las Californias), occasionally known as the Three Californias or Two Californias, are a region of North America spanning the United States and Mexico, consisting of the U.S.

state of California and the Mexican states of Baja California and Baja California Sur.

The Gulf Extensional Province extends south from the Sal- ton Trough in southern Alta California along the eastern side of the Baja California peninsula. The waters of the Gulf of California have intruded a structural depression created by detachment and oblique rifting of the peninsula from mainland M6xico [Lonsdale, ].

1. Introduction [2] The Gulf of The Gulf and peninsular province of the Californias book is one of the best modern examples of an oblique continental rift, a rift in which the rift margins are oblique to the direction of continental separation ().The evolution of rifting in the Gulf of California has been studied in the context of the geometry and kinematics of the Pacific‐North American plate boundary [Stock and Hodges, ].

Crustal thickness of the Peninsular Ranges and Gulf extensional province in the Californias. Abstract. The Gulf of California (GC) presents several oceanographic features that make it unique among semienclosed seas of similar latitude and dimensions, the most important being strong tidal mixing, some of it close to deep stratification.

As a peninsula, Baja California is surrounded by water on three sides with borders on the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of California.

The state also has diverse topography but it is divided in the middle by the Sierra de Baja California, the Peninsular Ranges. The largest of these ranges are the Sierra de Juarez and the Sierra de San Pedro Martir. Pub.

There are two schools of thought as to the origin of the gulf. Arabian Peninsula is the largest peninsula in the world, at 3, km 2 (1, sq mi).

Arabia consists of seven countries: Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

The crust then thins rapidly under the topographically high eastern Peninsular Ranges and across the Main Gulf Escarpment. Crustal thickness is ∼15–18 (±2) km within and on the margins of the Gulf of California. The Moho shallowing beneath the eastern Peninsular Ranges represents an average apparent westward dip of ∼25°.
