    In , about miles of the San Andreas Fault slipped, from San Juan Bautista to Cape Mendocino. Starting off the Golden Gate, the fault unzipped itself at over 5, miles per hour, taking 20 seconds to reach this point. However, the northern part of the fault slipped much more than the southern part of the fault. The section north of the File Size: 99KB.   A researcher investigating several facets of the San Andreas Fault has produced a new depiction of the earthquake potential of the fault’s southern, highly .

Southern California (colloquially known as SoCal; Spanish: Sur de California) is a geographic and cultural region that generally comprises the southernmost counties of California, and is the second most populous urban agglomeration in the United States. The southern California book contains ten counties: Imperial, Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo Country: United States.

The San Andreas Fault is easy to follow through California. From the Salton Sea, it runs northwest miles before ending under the Pacific Ocean. The San Andreas Fault is known as a transform fault, which is where two of the earth's plates meet. In this case, it's where the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate come together.

Inland Empire: After the San Andreas Fault works its way through the eastern San Gabriels along the Cajon Pass, it then traverses the southern boundary of the mountains as it moves farther east.

In Highland, just outside of San Bernardino, you can observe the fault's handiwork at Plunge Creek, offset by more than meters over : Sandi Hemmerlein. The San Andreas fault zone has been a very significant source of major California earthquakes. From to it generated four major earthquakes of M ∼7 or larger in two pairs on two major.

The spectacular, trench-like roadcut where the Antelope Valley Freeway (California 14) crosses the San Andreas fault zone not only excellently exposes the geology within the zone but is also the most readily accessible point on the San Andreas fault for residents of the Los Angeles region.

This road cut through the San Andreas fault zone is located on the eastern side of the Antelope Valley Freeway just north of Avenue S in Palmdale, California. It is oriented roughly perpendicular to the strike of the fault and exposes many features of the zone where the surface rupture occurred during the Fort Tejon earthquake.

Southern California’s section of the San Andreas fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll,” a leading earthquake scientist said last week at the National Earthquake Conference. The San Andreas Fault is the foremost of a set of faults along the boundary between the Pacific Plate on the west and the North American Plate on the east.

The west side moves north, causing earthquakes with its movement. The forces associated with the fault have pushed up mountains in some places and stretched apart large basins in : Andrew Alden. San Andreas Fault: Groundwater in California's Central Valley is so depleted that it has raised the Sierra Nevada mountains and Coast Ranges.

The San Andreas Fault proper, at least the Southern Segment, has only existed for about 5 million years. The first known incarnation of the southern part of the fault was Clemens Well-Fenner-San Francisquito fault zone around 22–13 Ma.

This system added the San Gabriel Fault as a primary focus of movement between 10–5 Ma. Back Cover - The San Andreas fault in Coachella Valley, southern California, showing uplifted and folded Quaternary strata in the Indio Hills (left foreground).

The San Andreas Fault is the most famous fault in the world. Its notoriety comes partly from the disastrous San Francisco earthquake, but rather more importantly because it passes through California, a highly-populated state that is frequently in the with many research institutions dedicated to studying such an accessible fault, the SAF has become a household name.San Andreas is among the biggest fault lines in the correct name is San Andreas Fault System and it stretches for some 1, kilometers.

It starts near the Salton Sea and ends Mendocino.On this portion of the fault the movement tends to be in sudden large events, and it is thought that this section of the San Andreas Fault moves significantly only every few hundred years.

California’s earthquake was the sudden result of such motion. The fort itself lies on .
