Harmony Headlands

Harmony Headlands is located in the Central Coast region of California. Historically, the region of coastline where the site is located could only be accessed via private property, but the land was converted to CA State Parks in 2008, and thus human visitation has increased in recent years. This moderately sloping, site consists of extremely uneven terrain, containing many deep cracks and folds.

Harmony Headlands long-term survey overview

Harmony Headlands is dominated by consolidated bedrock separated by numerous surge channels, and the area surrounding the site is comprised of a mixture of consolidated bedrock, boulder fields, and cobble beach.

Long-Term Monitoring Surveys at Harmony Headlands were established in 2008, and are done by University of California Santa Cruz.
