The Transverse Ranges domain is characterized by pronounced north-northeast-oriented maximum horizontal compressive stress and associated Quaternary crustal shortening, west-trending reverse and left-lateral reverse-oblique faults and earthquake focal mechanisms, and a frequent occurrence of damaging earthquakes.

The Santa Clara watershed lies in a tectonically active area in the western Transverse Range in southern California. Faults and folds trend east-west, associated with north-south compression caused by the "big bend" of the right lateral strike-slip San Andreas fault which is near the northern and eastern boundary.

Some faults in the Western Transverse Ranges have accommodated some strike-slip motion during the late Quaternary, and the larger earthquakes in the Central Transverse Ranges, to the east of the study area, have exhibited up to 30% left-lateral strike-slip motion (cf.

the San Fernando earthquake).Author: Yuval Levy, Yuval Levy, T. Rockwell, John Shaw, Andreas Plesch, Neal Driscoll, Héctor Perea. North-dipping, generally high-angle surface fault (shallower at depth) is part of east-west frontal fault system (also including Anacapa-Dume [], Malibu Coast [99], Hollywood [] and Raymond [] faults) that has accommodated 80° of clockwise rotation of the western Transverse Ranges and perhaps as much as 60 km left slip displacement.

Detailed mapping of Quaternary deposits and geomorphic surfaces and quantitative morphometric analyses of landscape elements within the Montebello Hills and Monterey Park Hills are used to characterize the style and patterns of Quaternary deformation associated with the blind thrust fault considered responsible for the Whittier Narrows earthquake (M L ) in.

The western Transverse Ranges trend east to west crosswise with respect to the northwesterly fabric of California. The San Andreas fault trends more east to west within the Transverse Ranges than elsewhere.

This kink is known as the Big Bend. Simple north-south compression could have caused both the east-west folds and faults and the Big Bend.

Thrust ramps coincide with zones of high seismicity in the Transverse Ranges; this suggests that ramp regions have the highest potential for compressive earthquake events: e.g., the recent Whittier Narrows earthquake of October 1, (M 1 = Cited by: Nonetheless, its occurrence reemphasized the seismic hazard of concealed faults associated with the contractional deformation of the Transverse Ranges.

In the vicinity of the Transverse Ranges, two important shear systems splay from the San Andreas fault: the eastern California shear zone trending NNW from the eastern Transverse Ranges and the trans-Peninsular faults trending SSE from the western and central Transverse Ranges.
