The disappearance of the ephemeral lake has made earthquakes along the San Andreas Fault even more unpredictable.
A five-year time series from radar satellite imagery tracks surface slip on major faults in the San Francisco Bay Area, capturing subtle velocity variations and controlling factors.
A new model considers the full history of earthquakes on a fault, improving forecasts of when the next will strike.
Using a physical experiment, researchers show how off-fault deformation occurs along strike-slip faults with different types of motion.
The transdimensional Bayesian approach handles GPS data limitations better than existing methods and may assist future seismic hazard assessment studies.
A high-resolution map of surface displacements indicates that the 2017 Chiapas earthquake caused substantial creep along a segment of the San Andreas Fault, located 3,000 kilometers away.
When the gravity of the Sun and Moon causes Earth's crust to bulge every 2 weeks, slow-moving earthquakes proliferate in the lower reaches of the San Andreas, a new study finds.
Tidal forces act on well water around the San Andreas Fault, giving researchers a new window into the hydrogeological structure of fault zones.
