Slip Rates on the San Andreas Fault System Article


  • Earthquake hazards along the San Andreas Fault System (SAFS) can be assessed from fault slip rate estimates. A layered earthquake cycle model describes the state of the crust in California and helps to reconcile seemingly disparate geologic and geodetic slip rates. Ultimately a better understanding of earthquakes through such observations and modeling can help reduce risks.
