Klappentext

Excerpt from Proceedings of the California Academy of Sciences, 1897-1904, Vol. 1: Geology

Santa Catalina Island, one of the group known as the Channel Islands, off the coast of southern California, lies about 20 miles south of San Pedro Hill, the nearest point on the mainland. At about the same distance south of Santa Catalina lies the island of San Clemente, the three eleva tions being nearly in a straight line.

The general trend of the island is northwest by west. Its length is approximately twenty-one miles, with an aver age width of three miles, varying from half a mile at the isthmus to about eight miles in the widest part. The pre vailing winds are from west to southwest, and the waves exert their greatest force on the southwest face of the island.' They are, however, by no means inactive on the landward side, as is shown by the rapidly retreating shore-line.
