The Franciscan Complex or Franciscan Assemblage is a geologic term for a late Mesozoic terrane of heterogeneous rocks found throughout the California Coast Ranges, and particularly on the San Francisco was named by geologist Andrew Lawson, who also named the San Andreas fault that defines the western extent of the assemblage.

The Franciscan Named for: San Francisco, California. The Santa Maria basin of central California is a geologically complex area located along the tectonically active California continental margin. The record of Cenozoic tectonism preserved in Santa Maria strata provides an opportunity to compare the evolution of the region with plate tectonic models for Cenozoic interactions along the margin.

We also suggest that a similar, but slightly earlier onset of crustal extension affected the Santa Maria basin and adjacent regions in central California, and that the southern margin of this "Santa Maria basin rift" was overridden during Neogene clockwise rotation of the WTR.

The kinematic connection of the normal faults of the Death Valley region, with the San Andreas fault system via the faults of the Mojave Desert accords with the deduction of Atwater () that late Cenozoic extension in portions of the Basin and Range province is related to Pacific-North American transform shear.

The Death Valley region, of southeast California and southwest Nevada, is distinct relative to adjacent regions in its structural style and resulting topography, as well as in the timing of basin-range extension.

Cenozoic basin-fill strata, ranging in age from greater than or equal to 40 to approximately 2 million years are common within mountain-range uplifts in this region. Petrogenesis of Franciscan pillow basalts from the Franciscan Complex of western Marin County California entails both dynamic crystallization of tholeiitic magma and subsequent low-temperature metamorphism.

Brittle deformation during tectonic emplacement of pillow basalts into a chert greywacke terrain is manifested by the shearing of interpillow matrix and polishing Cited by: The clearest examples of mafic crust of uniform 5–7 km thickness connecting with normal, nonsubducted oceanic crust are offshore from the Santa Maria basin [Tréhu, ; Miller et al., ] and southwest of Santa Cruz [Page and Brocher, ].

DiPietro, in Landscape Evolution in the United States, Cratonic Deformation: Laramide and Maria Thick-Skinned Belts.

The Laramide orogeny was the most recent (nonactive) orogeny to affect the Cordillera. It occurred primarily between 75 and 55 million years ago, although some structures are as young as 40 million years.In Ventura basin offshore area, middle Miocene Conejo Volcanics form an acoustic marker.
