[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: In southern California, there is significant seismic hazard from a major
earthquake on the San Andreas fault. The southern part of the fault has not
seen a major event since 1690, and the accumulated slip may amount to as much
as six meters, setting the stage for an earthquake that could be as large as
magnitude 7.7. But scientists and engineers wanted to know in more detail just
how intensely the ... View entire text
