Middle Tertiary basin development, San Joaquin Valley, California


, : Middle Tertiary basin development, San Joaquin Valley, California. Geological Society of America Bulletin 80(5): 783-819

Biofacies studies of well samples from the southern part of theSan Joaquin Valley made possible the recognition of 13 paleobathymetric zones between depths of 0 and more than 6,000 feet. Paleobathymetric maps indicate that the basin was deepest (abyssal depths) in Oligocene and early Miocene time, and shallowed to neritic depths in latest Miocene and Pliocene time; these maps also indicate that a connection with oceanic waters to the west occurred consistently at the southwestern corner of the basin across the San Andreas fault, and frequency maps of planktonic foraminifera indicate that the principal current moved counter clockwise. Sedimentation exceeded subsidence and more than 5,000 cubic miles of strata represent the sediments deposited during the middle Tertiary stages.
