Liquefaction in Deposits of River

Image: Liquefaction in Deposits of River

Detailed Description

Liquefaction in recent deposits of the Pajaro River formed sand volcanoes along a fissure 6-7 m (19.7-23 ft) long. Variation in grain size and partial erosion of the conical deposits of sand show that venting of the slurry of sand and water was a complex series of depositional and erosional events triggered by the main shock and renewed in some instances by principal aftershocks.
