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.

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 article describes the occurrence of listric normal faults (those which gradually flatten out with depth) in the continental shelf offshore Oregon and Washington, as seen in seismic reflection profiles. There is also a discussion of the faulting mechanics, the timing of uplift on the continental shelf, and the separation of compressional and extensional tectonic regimes on the lower and upper ...

This activity is the first in a two part sequence designed to increase students' understandings about earthquakes. It will address the following questions: What is an earthquake?; What is the role of a model in science?; and How are scientific ideas constantly changing? The activity involves the construction of a model ('The Earthquake Machine') that allows students to explore stick-slip behavior ... Full description.
