Detailed Description

Faults and earthquakes recorded from the Monterey Peninsula to Pigeon Point — Map of faults and earthquakes recorded from the Monterey Peninsula to Pigeon Point, including the new offshore mapping. The on-land San Andreas fault zone (SAFZ) and the offshore San Gregorio fault zone (SGFZ) are long, continuous, hazardous faults. Crustal deformation between these two fault zones results in several shorter faults and fractures, including the Monterey Bay fault zone (MBFZ).
