San Andreas Fault
The research out of USC suggests that a major earthquake on the San Andreas Fault could trigger large earthquakes on other nearby faults, intensifying the damage over a larger area.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake measured magnitude 2.5 and struck at a depth of 6 kilometers at 7:41 a.m. local time, just west of the San Andreas Fault.
A small earthquake shook off the coast of San Francisco and the Peninsula Friday afternoon.
Four areas of the San Andreas fault system in the San Francisco Bay Area have accumulated enough energy to produce major earthquakes, a new study finds.
Trying to predict an earthquake’s arrival may not yet be possible, but learning about what causes them and remaining ever vigilant for the next one is vital.
A high-tech earthquake laboratory in the Central Valley, that has been studying the San Andreas Fault, is in danger of shutting down as funding has dried up for the unique lab in Parkfield.
A 3.9 magnitude earthquake struck an area of Southern California near San Bernardino Monday, according to the U.S. Geologicial Survey.
Excessive groundwater pumping for irrigation in California’s agricultural belt can stress the San Andreas Fault, potentially increasing the risk of future small earthquakes, a new study suggests.
With a network of sensors spread across the UC Berkeley campus, scientists are hoping to get a clear picture — and sounds — of the Hayward Fault’s next big move.
Experts say a bigger earthquake along the lesser-known fault that gave Southern California a moderate shake could do more damage to the region than the long-dreaded “Big One” from the more famous San Andreas Fault.
