Estimates of Quaternary slip rate from studies near Los Angeles suggest about to mm/yr (Wesnousky , Freeman et al. , Grant et al. along the northern segments of the fault. Detailed subsurface structure contour maps and cross sections have shown the northern Los Angeles basin to be underlain by a south facing monocline that is complicated by secondary faults and folds. The monocline forms a structural shelf that marks the northern boundary of the Los Angeles central trough.   The Anzi-Calvello Basin (ACB) is located south of Potenza ().It is a small Plio-Pleistocene basin that is elongated in a roughly ENE–WSW direction over a distance of about 10 km ().Previous work has mainly focused on the stratigraphy and geomorphology of the area (Amato and Cinque, , Amore et al., , Ciampo, ), and have referred to the ACB as a piggy-back basin (e.g. Patacca et al. [1] The Palos Verdes anticlinorium (PVA) is a 70 km‐wide, NW‐trending Pliocene‐Quaternary transpressional high that separates the onshore Los Angeles basin from the offshore San Pedro basin. The PVA southwest limb underlies a 70 km‐long SW facing seafloor escarpment. This escarpment is separated into two segments by a 6 km right step.
