Abstract: Mapping surficial seafloor facies (sand, silt, muddy sand, rock, etc.) should
be the first step in marine geological studies and is crucial when modeling
sediment processes, pollution transport, deciphering tectonics, and defining
benthic habitats. This report outlines an empirical technique that predicts the
distribution of seafloor facies for a large area offshore Los Angeles, CA using
