Repetto Formation, Los Angeles Basin (06)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

06 Continuity:

The sandy deposits of the Repetto Formation, consisting of channel-fill deposits in suprafan facies, are distributed in the central structural trough north and east of the Palos Verdes Hills (Redin, 1991). These sandstones were sourced from the northeast, from conglomeratic mid- to upper-channelized fan deposits. Repetto sandstones grade southward from the suprafan facies into distal submarine-fan facies into offshore areas.
