Earth strain measurements in Nevada and possible effects on seismicity due to the solid tides
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1972)
This study investigates the relation between seismicity and measurable strain changes in the Nevada region. Three-component strain meter systems have been operated in the state of Nevada to observe strain changes.
Active faults and associated tectonic stress in the Coso Range, California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1981)
The Coso Range contains faults that have been active in the Holocene. Some of these faults have moved about 100 years ago, possibly with the 1872 Owens Valley earthquake. Exploratory trenches exposed offsets up to 3.4 ...
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 ...
Geophysical constraints on seismic hazard and tectonics in the Western Basin and Range
(University of Nevada, Reno, 2001)
Methods of shallow exploration geophysics are used to gather information regarding seismic hazards and tectonics.
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 ...
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 ...
Seismicity and tectonics of the Garfield Hills area Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1989)
The seismicity and tectonics of the Garfield Hills area have been studied. The seismicity of the area sometimes correlates with mapped faults, and is characterized by short-lived, randomly distributed clusters.
