Complex Slip Triggered by Complex Geology for 2014 South Napa Earthquake Article


  • Using GPS and Sentinel 1 radar imagery, the slip along the West Napa fault zone (WNFZ) during and after the 2014 South Napa earthquake was measured. The complexity of the slip and afterslip suggests that hard rock and soft sediment heterogeneity control the style of friction on the fault plane.
