Abstract : From an occupation of 68 ocean bottom and 38 land gravity stations between Pt. Lobos and Pt. Sur, California, a complete Bouguer anomaly map was produced and analyzed. The steps in data reduction leading to the complete Bouguer anomaly field are presented, unique features of which are associated with bottom gravimetry. The geological interpretation of the gravity data shows excellent correlation with earlier seismic records of the proposed offshore extension of the Serra Hill fault, a structure long associated with the Sur-Nacimiento fault zone.
