San Andreas Fault
Sandra S. Schulz (au); Robert E. Wallace (au)
The presence of the San Andreas Fault in California was brought dramatically to world attention on April 18, 1906, when sudden displacement along the fault produced the great San Francisco earthquake and fire. This earthquake, however, was but one of many that have resulted from episodic displacement along the fault throughout its life of about 15-20 million years. Contents: What Is It?; Where Is It?; What Surface Features Characterize It?; What Kind of Movement Has Occurred Along the Fault?; What Is An Earthquake?; What Do Earthquake “Magnitude” and “Intensity” Mean?; Earthquakes Along the Fault; When Could the Next Large Earthquake Occur Along the San Andreas Fault?; and What Can Be Done About the Faults and Earthquakes?
