    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;Will
open in a new tab or window/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 major faults

    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?
