  • The Owens Valley Analysis

    The Owens Valley is a structural trough that has been dropped down as a graben along regional scale normal faults that separate it structurally from the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the west, and the White Mountains to the east (Pakiser, et al. 1964). Measured at 121 km north to south and it encompasses roughly 1400 square kilometers, the Owens Valley includes such features as hot springs, the basal Bishop Tuff from the Long Valley Caldera eruption which occurred approximately 750,000 years ago…

There are various methods to prove that the Hayward Fault is creeping, and the evidence is viewable such as offset curbsides, building that are being torn apart, and cracks in the earth’s surface. The Hayward Fault is a strike-slip fault meaning it moves up, and down, thus giving us multiple locations in which the surface is affected. There are five different locations that I chose on the Hayward…
