Changing impacts of Alaska-Aleutian subduction zone tsunamis in California under future sea-level rise

Nature Communications | December 8th, 2021


The amplification of coastal hazards such as distant-source tsunamis under future relative sea-level rise (RSLR) is poorly constrained. In southern California, the Alaska

Community Exposure to Tsunami Hazards in California

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


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

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

Stanford University | February 12th, 2018


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

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


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


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


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


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


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
