    Abstract The Los Angeles basin is a Neogene rift containing a nearly ideal petroleum system. Highly organicrich strata accumulated slowly during tectonic rotation, followed by rapid subsidence and burial beneath thick successions of submarine fan deposits and nonmarine sediments. Los Angeles Basin Modeling Summary 5 Model characteristics Primarily used to develop Best Management Practices for improving storm water quality in the greater Los Angeles area. Simulated outcomes Low flow and peak discharge related to storm water response to rainfall events. Agencies using the model Los Angeles County Flood Control District.

In18 seismic stations were installed in the Los Angeles basin to record teleseismic, regional, and local earthquakes. The goals of the experiment were to quantify amplification of ground motion due to variations in sedimentary environments and subsurface structures, and to examine the tectonic extensional and compressional history of the Los Angeles basin and San Gabriel Mountains by.

The objective of the passive seismic experiment is to measure vibrations of the lunar surface produced by all natural and artificial sources of seismic energy and to use these data to deduce the.

The goal of the Los Angeles Region Seismic Experiment (LARSE 93) passive phase was to collect waveform data from local and distant earthquakes to study lower crust and upper mantle structural features in southern California, particularly under the San Gabriel Mountains and San Andreas LA approximately 88 stations were deployed in a km-long, linear array Cited by: Paul Davis currently works at the Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences (ESS), University of California, Los Angeles.

Name: Diagram: Description: Active Seismic Experiment (ASE) Through the use of seismology the internal structure of the Moon could be determined to several hundred feet underground.

The ASE consisted of three major components. A set of three geophones was laid out in a line by an astronaut from the Central Station to detect the explosions. A mortar package was designed to lob a set of four.
