presented By Suzanne Hecker, USGS Geologist 
 
  • Remote sensing technology reveals surface traces of the fault covered by trees and buildings.
  • Greater fault length and linkages to neighboring faults make larger earthquakes possible.
  • Fault complexity has implications for hazards from ground shaking and surface fault rupture.
