The Rise and Fall of the San Andreas Fault Captured by a Dense Geodetic Network Book


  • The San Andreas Fault System (SAFS) has been captured flexing between large earthquakes in southern California with EarthScope’s Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO). The flexure is related to 300 years of fault locking and creeping at different fault depths. Quantifying the flexure will improve estimates of seismic hazard.
