Seismotectonics of theWhite Mountains fault system, east-central California and west-central Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1989)
The White Mountains Fault System is an active range-bounding system with Holocene activity along most or all of its extent. The system is capable of earthquakes of magnitude 7.1 to 7.8 and has a slip rate of about 1 mm/yr.
Active faults in Quaternary alluvium, and seismic regionalization, in a portion of the Mount Rose Quadrangle, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1969)
Active faults in Quaternary alluvium have been studied and a tentative seismic regionalization map has been proposed for a portion of the Reno-Truckee Meadows area.
Quaternary tectonic deformation and seismic hazard in the Casmalia Range, coastal south-central California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1993)
A suite of Quaternary stratigraphic units and geomorphic surfaces on the margins of the Casmalia Range allow assessment of the style and rate of range uplift, the presence or absence of active folding, and the style and ...
Late Cenozoic tectonic deformation along the northern White Mountains, Mono and Inyo Counties, California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1984)
Tectonic activity was studied along the northern White Mountains. The increase in seismic activity combined with the existence of numerous newly formed fault scarps suggest that region may be beginning a seismic gap filling ...
Neotectonics of the southern Amargosa Desert, Nye County, Nevada and Inyo County, California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1991)
Three fault zones were studied in the southern Amargosa Desert. These fault zones suggest extension is occurring in an E-W direction.
Late Quaternary deformation and seismic risk in the northern Sierra Nevada-Great Basin boundary zone near the Sweetwater Mountains, California and Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1985)
Remote-sensing, seismic and field studies indicate three major zones of Quaternary deformation near the Sweetwater Mountains. Holocene fault scarps are present in the Antelope, Little Antelope, Smith and Bridgeport Valleys, ...
Late Quaternary tectonic activity of the Meers Fault, southwest Oklahoma
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1988)
The Meers fault in southwestern Oklahoma is an active fault capable of producing large, damaging earthquakes. The most recent large event is late Holocene, occurring some 1,200 - 1,300 years ago, and it was preceded by one ...
