Parkfield: Plans for a San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth
Building on more than 15 years of experience from the Parkfield Earthquake Experiment, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the USGS started in June 2004 to drill a deep hole in order to install instruments...
This activity consists of four exercises that deal with the partitioning of slip within scenarios involving two or more faults. The first three are hypothetical situations; the last activity focuses on the plate...
Seven Paper Models that Describe Faulting of the Earth
This site shows how to make paper models representing simple faults and illustrating some of the landforms associated with faulting of the Earth's crust.
How Many Earthquakes Does It Take to Build a Mountain?
In this activity, students use data on fault motion (derived from the horizontal movement of a GPS monument) to calculate the number of earthquakes necessary to build a mountain range. They will also determine the...
Revealing a Fault Plane with Hypocenters
In this exercise, learners will plot earthquake hypocenters along a cross-section in an attempt to 'image' a fault deep beneath the surface. The hypocenter data is from the aftershock sequence of the 1986 North Palm...
