About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 309.

It is always a moving experience for us here in California to stand on the San Andreas fault-to realize that the ground beneath our feet has shifted 330 km dextrally over the last 24 Ma-to realize that even as we stand there, it may shift laterally as much as 6 m-and to know that is some places it is presently creeping as rapidly as 35mm/yr.
