San Gregorio fault

San Gregorio fault zone is part of a system of strike-slip faults than include the Hosgri and Sur Faults, which extend from Point Arguello north of Santa Barbara to Monterrey Bay to Bolinas. The fault may have become active by the middle Miocene, and has accumulated at least 150 km of offset since then. Onshore trenching studies have shown a slip rate of about 6 to 8 mm/yr on the Sea Cove Fault and regional geologic corrections give a similar slip rate of about 6mm/yr (Burns, Cooper, Carlson, McCulloch pg 85).
