Community Exposure to Tsunami Hazards in California

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) | February 20th, 2013

Summary

Evidence of past events and modeling of potential events suggest that tsunamis are significant threats to low-lying communities on the California coast. To reduce potenti

Factors and Processes Affecting Delta Levee System Vulnerability

San Francisco Estuary & Watershed Science (UC Davis) | December 1st, 2016

Summary

The authors appraised factors and processes related to human activities and high water, subsidence, and seismicity. Farming and drainage of peat soils over time has cause

Irregular Focal Mechanisms Observed at Salton Sea Geothermal Field: Possible Influences of Anthropogenic Stress Perturbations

Stanford University | February 12th, 2018

Summary

At the Salton Sea Geothermal Field (SSGF), strain accumulation is released through seismic slip and aseismic deformation. Earthquake activity at the SSGF often oc

Resilience by Design

Summary

Resilience by Design presents the recommendations of the Mayoral Seismic Safety Task Force, the members of which are listed in the Acknowledgements Section of this docume

Seasonal non-tectonic loading inferred from GPS as a potential trigger for the M6.0 South Napa Earthquake

Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth | May 8th, 2018

Summary

It is well established that earthquakes occur on fault systems where stress has accumulated over periods of centuries to millennia. The specific factors that trigger indi

State Water Project Seismic Loading Criteria Report

California Department of Water Resources (DWR) | September 19th, 2012

Summary

Seismic loading criteria are developed for various types of structures in the State Water Project (SWP) to use in future designs and evaluations. The SWP system supplies

Stormquakes

American Geophysical Union (AGU) | October 14th, 2019

Summary

Seismic signals from ocean-solid Earth interactions are ubiquitously recorded on our planet. However, these wavefields are typically incoherent in the time domain limiti

Subsurface Geometry of the San Andreas Fault in Southern California: Results from the Salton Seismic Imaging Project (SSIP) and Strong Ground Motion Expectations

Seismological Society of America (SSA) | August 1st, 2017

Summary

The San Andreas fault (SAF) is one of the most studied strike‐slip faults in the world; yet its subsurface geometry is still uncertain in most locations. The Salton S
