Melange of fragmented and sheared Franciscan complex rocks.
Franciscan complex: Cretaceous and Jurassic sandstone with smaller amounts of shale, chert, limestone, and conglomerate. Includes Franciscan melange, except where separated--see KJfm.
Sandstone, siltstone, shale, and conglomerate; in part Pleistocene and Miocene.
Alluvium, lake, playa, and terrace deposits; unconsolidated and semi-consolidated. Mostly nonmarine, but includes marine deposits near the coast.
Sandstone, shale, siltstone, conglomerate and breccia; in part Pliocene and Oligocene.
Blueschist and semi-schist of Franciscan complex
Mesozoic granite, quartz monzonite, granodiorite, and quartz diorite
Undivided Mesozoic volcanic and metavolcanic rocks. Andesite and rhyolite flow rocks, greenstone, volcanic breccia and other pyroclastic rocks; in part strongly metamorphosed. Includes volcanic rocks of Franciscan Complex: basaltic pillow lava, diabase, greenstone, and minor pyroclastic rocks.
Ultramafic rocks, mostly serpentine. Minor peridotite, gabbro, and diabase. Chiefly Mesozoic unit 3
Selected large landslides, such as Blackhawk slide on north side of San Gabriel Mountains; early to late Quaternary.
Extensive marine and nonmarine sand deposits, generally near the coast or desert playas
Tertiary volcanic flow rocks; minor pyroclastic deposits.
Lower Cretaceous sandstone, shale, and conglomerate
Pliocene and/or Pleistocene sandstone, shale, and gravel deposits; in part Miocene.
Older alluvium, lake, playa, and terrace deposits.
Sandstone, shale, and conglomerate; mostly well consolidated
