Geology of California introduces plate tectonics, geologic dating and the formation of earth materials and uses these concepts to explore how the state's landscape has been shaped by different geologic processes as California's tectonic setting has changed during the past two billion years. It also examines the roles that these various processes have played in producing California's mineral resources and creating the geologic hazards that confront so many of the state’s citizens today.
