This reference explains the phenomenon of soil liquefaction, a common cause of damage to man-made structures that occurs during earthquakes. Students can read an explanation of how the water in wet soils exerts a pressure on the soil particles that influences how tightly the particles themselves are pressed together, causing the soil to lose strength. The text is accompanied by animations that show ... Full description.

This map shows estimated Modified Mercalli Intensity (MMI) values for the City of San Francisco and the eight counties of the Greater Bay Area, in a scenario based on the 1906 earthquake along the San Andreas fault. The 430 kilometers of fault rupture included several segments during one massive earthquake. Links are supplied to more detailed maps of the cities of Rohnert Park, Pittsburg, Antioch, ...

This report describes the relationship between shaking intensity of earthquakes and the nature of the geologic materials in the San Francisco Bay area. In general, deep, loose sediments such as bay mud, beach, dune, and stream deposits, and man-made fill are more susceptible to shaking than are harder materials such as granite. It also points out that the majority of development in the Bay area is ... Full description.

This photo shows damage caused by the Loma Prieta Earthquake, October 17, 1989, in San Francisco. An automobile lies crushed under the third story of this apartment building in the Marina District. The ground levels are no longer visible because of structural failure and sinking due to liquefaction. Full description.
