Seismic Constraints and Coulomb Stress Changes of a Blind Thrust Fault System, 1: Coalinga and Kettleman Hills, California
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2006_1149

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This report reviews the seismicity and surface ruptures associated with the
1982-1985 earthquake sequence in the Coalinga region in California, and the
role of Coulomb stress in triggering the mainshock sequence and aftershocks.
The 1982-1985 New Idria, Coalinga, and Kettleman Hills earthquakes struck on a
series of west-dipping, en echelon blind thrust faults. Each earthquake was
accompanied by ... View entire text
