The area is separated by the San Gabriel fault into two separate provinces. The Tertiary sediments of the Eastern province, or extreme upper portion of the Santa Clara drainage system, are principally of terrestrial origin, while those lying westerly from the San Gabriel fault are almost entirely marine. Sedimentation in both provinces was concurrent during most of Tertiary time. The paper consists of a paleogeographic analysis of the area.
