The July 4 and 5 quakes occurred to the north of and far from the San Andreas Fault.
The ShakeOut scenario envisioned the earthquake beginning to move the San Andreas Fault at the Salton Sea close to the Mexican border, then moving rapidly to the northwest toward LA County.
Scientific Computer Applications MCS contour map software contours the San Andreas Fault map down to-20,000 meters (-65,616 ft or approximately 12 miles).
Moore spotted the talc along a segment of the San Andreas Fault known to produce microquakes rather than huge tremors.
Individual topics include interaction between normal faults and pre-existing thrust systems in analogue models; analogue and numerical modeling of accretionary prisms with a decollement in sediments; and the relation between effective friction and fault slip rate across the northern San Andreas fault system.
Living near the San Andreas Fault, one can become so inured to the frequent tremors that he gradually forgets that living in California has always been something of a gamble.
"Our understanding of seismic hazard in Northern California, including the Bay Area relies on a thorough understanding of this earthquake and the San Andreas Fault," notes Gregory C.
The San Andreas Fault was discovered only a decade before the 1906 disaster in San Francisco--an event that changed how scientists look at earthquakes.
One new finding about the 1906 quake is that the San Andreas fault split apart, or ruptured, faster than scientists had assumed at the time.
In the 1980s, seismologists noticed that the San Andreas Fault beneath Parkfield possesses an unusual trait: It seemed to produce neatly timed 6.0 earthquakes about 20 years apart.
Then there was the San Andreas Fault. A fault is a long, deep break in Earth's crust between two tectonic plates (see Geoskills, p.
He questions his own uneasy peace with surviving the shakes and strives to detect how Californians withstand the stress and pressure of abiding along the big one, the San Andreas Fault.
