The Santa Barbara urban area has a more serious earthquake hazard than previously thought. Results from studying the coastal landscape over the past 100,000 years suggest rates of uplift from active earthquake processes has formed a series of elongated hills (growing anticlines that look like half a banana sliced lengthwise flat side down on a table). We informally referred to the set of east - west coastal hills, some of which are several km (mi) long and with over 100 m (320 ft) in local relief (elevation change from base to top), the Santa Barbara Fold Belt. Our research estimates ages of uplifted marine terraces (wave-cut platforms covered with a thin layer of beach or land derived sediments and periodically uplifted by earthquakes) at the coastline at several sites applying multiple age-dating techniques. Marine terraces that range in age from 47,000 to 105,000 years are being uplifted a rate of approximately 1 to 2 mm/year (3 to 6 ft per thousand years). The cumulative uplift that forms the linear hills is the result of multiple earthquakes and fold growth.


Phosphorus sources for phosphatic Cambrian carbonates

In lower Cambrian rocks, the skeletons of early animals are commonly replicated by the mineral apatite, a calcium phosphate mineral of similar composition to human teeth and bones. For reasons that remain unknown, however, apatite fossil preservation decreased during the middle of the period, limiting paleontologis
