Although the San Andreas Fault is the longest and one of the most active fault zones in California, it is not responsible for every earthquake in the state. This video segment describes the geologic setting of the San Andreas fault and a network of other active faults, particularly thrust faults, closer to Los Angeles, and explains why these may present a greater danger to the city than the San Andreas ...

This website provides an overview of the San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth (SAFOD) project, an initiative to drill into the fault in one of its most predictively active segments near Parkfield, California. Information accessible at the site includes a discussion of drilling methods, an introduction to the structure of the fault zone as it appears at Parkfield, and a discussion of earthquake prediction. ...

This downloadable compilation of articles was originally published as a series of weekly features in The San Francisco Chronicle. They present some of the new understanding gained and scientific advances made in the century since the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. Topics include lessons learned from the 1906 earthquake, the uses of seismograms, recognizing active faults, investigating faults ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
This demonstration of plate tectonic principles, plate boundary interactions, and the geometry and relative motions of faulting of geologic layers uses 3-D foam models. The models aid in visualization and understanding of plate motions and faulting because they are three-dimensional, concrete rather than abstract descriptions or diagrams, can be manipulated by the instructor and the students, and ...

In this activity, students create paper models to represent simple faults and illustrate some of the landforms associated with faulting of the Earth's crust. To make the models more realistic, some of the fault scarps are cut by gullies and are eroded in ways indicative of an arid landscape. All of the paper models show displacement on the fault by the use of arrows and by the offset of a marker bed ... Full description.

This National Park Service (NPS) site provides links to geology field notes providing information about National Parks, National Monuments, and National Recreation Areas that have to do with plate tectonics. The site also has illustrations and descriptions of different plate boundaries. The parks are divided into categories depending on which type of plate boundary they are located on. This includes ...
