The Miocene Monterey Formation, a biogenic deposit derived in large part from siliceous diatom frustules, is widely present in the California Coast Ranges, Transverse Ranges, and adjacent basins. Long regarded as the major petroleum source rock in California, the Monterey also has a long history as an important reservoir rock in the San Joaquin Valley, the onshore Santa Maria basin, and the ventura basin.

American Assoc. of Petrolium Geologists, Tulsa, USA. B. C. Parker and E. Y. Dawson. Non-calcareous marine algae from California Miocene deposits. This field trip guidebook uses the Miocene Monterey Formation as a natural laboratory to understand the origin, distribution and physical properties of biogenic, siliceous and organic-rich mudrocks deposited from clastic-starved, upwelling systems above marginal marine basins. The Monterey Formation is a bio-siliceous, very organic-rich deposit found in southern California. It was deposited between 17 and 5 million years ago during a time when tectonic forces were shifting, and localized subsidence during a time of high eustatic sea level, along with coastal upwelling, affected the .
