Third of a series of three views of the spectacular folds in the Calico Hills just east of Barstow, California.

COVE stands for 'Collaborative Ocean
Visualization Environment'. The software
application is a GIS geographic information system
software application that allows you to visualize
bathymetry information and other associated
information. The web site is www.neptune.washington.edu/cove&nb
sp;/I thought that
I read about it on one of your blogs, but I am not
able to verify it at the moment. It was under the
rumored Google Ocean post with a link.

Could you explain what COVE stands for and where
you downloaded it?

Thanks for the info. I downloaded COVE. Its pretty
cool. You can download different data sets and see

Broadly speaking, the folding seen here is related
to compressional deformation associated with the
Big Bend segment of the San Andreas and related
faults (including the nearby Calico Fault) along
the Pacific-North American plate boundary. I
don't have much more detailed geologic
information about this particular locality, but
they're some of the most spectacularly exposed
folds in the area. Surprisingly, I haven't
found any online field guides to the geology of
this particular locality - possibly because it is
an area that many schools use for field projects.

That is pretty interesting. Are you able to
elaborate on what is going on here?
