Abstract:
This database and accompanying plot files depict the distribution of geologic materials and structures at a regional (1:100,000) scale. The report is intended to provide geologic information for the regional study of materials properties, earthquake shaking, landslide potential, mineral hazards, seismic velocity, and earthquake faults. In addition, the report contains new information and interpretations about the regional geologic history and framework. However, the regional scale of this report does not provide sufficient detail for site development purposes. In addition, this map does not take the place of fault-rupture hazard zones designated by the California State Geologist (Hart and Bryant, 1997). Similarly, the database cannot be used to identify or delineate landslides in the region. This digital map database, compiled from previously published and unpublished data, and new mapping by the authors, represents the general distribution of bedrock and surficial deposits in the mapped area. Together with the accompanying text file (ceghmf.ps, ceghmf.pdf, ceghmf.txt), it provides current information on the geologic structure and stratigraphy of the area covered. The database delineates map units that are identified by general age and lithology following the stratigraphic nomenclature of the U.S. Geological Survey. The scale of the source maps limits the spatial resolution (scale) of the database to 1:100,000 or smaller. This is the pre-release version of the report. The accompanying text file mf2336.rev contains version numbers for each part of the data set. This report consists of a set of geologic map database files (Arc/ Info coverages) and supporting text and plotfiles. In addition, the report includes two sets of plotfiles (PostScript and PDF format) that will generate map sheets and pamphlets similar to a traditional USGS Miscellaneous Field Studies Report. These files are described in the explanatory pamphlets (ceghdesc and ceghdb). The base map layer used in the preparation of the geologic map plotfiles was downloaded from the web (www.gisdatadepot.com) as Digital Raster Graphic files of scale-stable versions of the USGS 1:100,000 topographic maps and coverted to TIFF images which were then converted to GRIDs. These grids contain no database information other than position, and are included for reference only. The base maps used were the Cape Mendocino (1989 edition), Eureka (1987 edition), Garberville (1979 edition), Hayfork (1978 edition) 1:100,000 topographic maps, which all have a 50-meter contour interval. The bathymetry maps were converted from the Coast and Geodetic Survey hydrographic chart 1308 N-12, 1969.

Access_Constraints: None
Use_Constraints:
Uses of this digital geologic map should not violate the spatial resolution of the data. Although the digital form of the data removes the constraint imposed by the scale of a paper map, the detail and accuracy inherent in map scale are also present in the digital data. The fact that this database was edited for a scale of 1:100,000 means that higher resolution information is not present in the dataset. Plotting at scales larger than 1:100,000 will not yield greater real detail, although it may reveal fine-scale irregularities below the intended resolution of the database. Similarly, where this database is used in combination with other data of higher resolution, the resolution of the combined output will be limited by the lower resolution of these data.
