Abstract

The following work is part of a continuing study of the sediments and sedimentary processes of the continental shelf of central California done in cooperation between the University of California, Berkeley and the Coastal Engineering Research Center, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Sediment analyses of the samples were done at the University of California, Berkeley, utilizing the facilities of the Departments of Civil Engineering, and Geology, and the Institute of Marine Resources. The results of this study will be presented in three separate reports:

Part A Part B Part C Introduction and Grain Size Data (this volume) Mineralogical Data Interpretation and Summary of Results.

The first two reports, Parts A and B, raw data will be presented with little or no interpretation. In Part C the authors' interpretation of the data plus background information and previous work in the study area will be given.
