Quaternary geology and neotectonic activity along the Fish Lake Valley fault zone, Nevada and California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1990)
The right-divergent Fish Lake Valley fault zone (FL VFZ), a 80 KM-long component of the northern Death Valley fault system, comprises contemporaneous NW-striking dextral faults, N-striking normal faults, NE-striking ...
Results of post and pre-stack migrations imaging the Hosgri fault, offshore Santa Maria Basin, CA
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1993)
The geometry and tectonic history of the Hosgri fault have been studied. The character of the Hosgri Fault was determined by performing post-stack and pre-stack migration of data obtained from a seismic reflection line. ...
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.
Remote sensing and geomorphic studies for seismotectonic analysis, Santa Maria Basin, California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1989)
Remote sensing and geomorphology were used to define active tectonics in the Santa Maria Basin of California. Examination of imagery and aerial photography revealed major lineaments and active-appearing rangefronts.
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 ...
Environmental geology problems of Pyramid Lake basin
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1975)
The study investigates faults, earthquake potential and problems, mass wasting, sanitary landfill site locations, and reviews selected water resources literature as they affect future development of the Pyramid Lake Indian ...
Quaternary tectonics and basin history of Pahrump and Stewart Valleys, Nevada and California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1991)
Three zones of the Pahrump fault system were studied. All three zones have geomorphic evidence for late Quaternary activity. Analysis of active fault patterns and seismic reflection lines suggests that the Pahrump basin ...
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, ...
