Defining the architecture and recurrence interval for faults in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta: Assessing potential geohazards

Publication Date

This project aimed to create a detailed fault map for the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The project began with a review of existing data and reports, then combined seismic data and radiocarbon dating of sediment cores to create the first detailed fault maps for the delta. The project also used  to determine when and where the most recent earthquake events in the region took place, which is important for predicting the likely future activity of faults.
