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 ...
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.
Seismic hazard within the greater San Francisco Bay region: A reevaluation after the Loma Prieta Earthquake
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1992)
Hazard maps for the San Francisco Bay region have been reconstructed to examine the effects of the crustal stress release associated with the Loma Prieta earthquake and new evidence of slip rates and paleoearthquake histories ...
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 ...
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.
A preliminary study of focal mechanisms of small earthquakes in the central Nevada region
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1967)
First arrivals suggest that normal and right-lateral movement was occurring on the Fairview Fault, except at the southern end, where it appears that reverse faulting is occurring.
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 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 ...
Fault Imaging with High-Resolution Seismic Reflection for Earthquake Hazard and Geothermal Resource Assessment in Reno, Nevada
The Truckee Meadows basin is situated adjacent to the Sierra Nevada microplate, on the western boundary of the Walker Lane. Being in the transition zone between a range-front normal fault on the west and northwest-striking ...
