Beach Processes

Spring, 2002
April 18-21

Instead of going into uncharted wilderness, this fieldtrip took us to the urban joys of Southern California to see beach processes in action (a difficult thing to do within Arizona) such as the surf in San Diego and oil seeps in Santa Barbara. The drivers did not enjoy the hours of rush-hour traffic, but we saw a complete change from the usual Arizona Basin-and-Range tectonics and volcanics. As usual, Jay Melosh was the trip leader. Peter took pictures on our trip to Southern California.
