Streetcar 2 Subduction, a Google Earth-based reboot of the famous geological field trip guides to the San Francisco Bay Area! Created with: , Callan Bentley, Kim Blisniuk and John Wakabayashi with support from the American Geophysical Union. This was an epic, nearly 2 year journey digging down into the geology and tectonics of one of my favorite regions on Earth, learning from geologists I have long admired (especially Clyde Wahrhaftig, the author of the original Streetcar to Subduction field trip guide, a pioneer in SF Bay Area geology and an early leader in diversity and inclusion efforts in the geosciences.
