      The San Andreas Fault is a continental transform fault that extends roughly 1, kilometers through California. Subscribe: About World Earthquakes: World Earthquakes is a. Figure - A broad valley marks trace of the San Andreas fault on the Point Reyes peninsula. During the great San Francisco earthquake of , slip on one strand of the fault offset a fence about m. Fence beyond break (west side) is relatively straight and aligned with line of view and with tape in foreground; fence on near (east) side bows gradually to meet the fault.

A km borehole near Cajon Pass on the San Andreas Fault has revealed that the expected heat from the fault is missing. 1 This paradox was discussed in a recent article in the science section of San Francisco Chronicle of 18 December 2 The article stated how researchers have measured only one half to one third of the expected heat, and.

The Hayward fault in the San Francisco Bay area runs through a densely-populated area, so it has been studied quite a most recent major earthquake on this fault was approximately M and occurred in The fault has been creeping about mm/yr ( inches/yr) for the last several decades, but that is only half of the long-term slip rate, so stress is building upon this fault.

Deeply eroded, Precambrian analogs of the San Andreas system. Rocks now exposed at the surface were at depths of 15 to 30 km and temperatures of to C when they were deformed. We have made several collections across the southeastern margin of the shear zone.

A model of tectonic loading by deep, aseismic fault slip causes the crust intervening between faults to carry less plate boundary stress than at the faults (Figure 3).

That stress distribution may be difficult to reconcile with con-clusions that the San Andreas and related faults are weakCited by: The longstanding debate over the strength of the San Andreas fault arose because heat flow measurements failed to show a narrow heat flow anomaly centered on the fault.

The San Andreas Fault in Southern California and Its Relationship to Lithospheric Structure   Contemporary in situ tectonic stress indicators along the San Andreas fault system in central California show northeast-directed horizontal compression that is nearly perpendicular to the strike of the fault.

Such compression explains recent uplift of the Coast Ranges and the numerous active reverse faults and folds that trend nearly parallel to the San Andreas and that are otherwise Cited by: In an attempt to provide constraints for the magnitude of shear stress on the San Andreas fault at depth we have measured both the variation of stress with distance from the fault in relatively shallow (∼ m) wells and the variation of stress with depth in a ∼1‐km‐deep well located 4 km from the by: PDF | On Jan 1,J.R.

Assuming steady fault system behavior since the C.E.

Introduction [2] It has been known for some time that stress orientations along the San Andreas fault (SAF) [Mount and Suppe, ; Zoback et al., ; Jones, ; Townend and Zoback, ] and the lack of a distinct heat flow anomaly at the trace of the fault [Lachenbruch and Sass,and references therein; Saffer et al., ] indicate average shear tractions less than 20–25 MPa.

Third, we reevaluate the state of stress on the San Andreas Fault in light of new constraints imposed by SAFOD borehole data. Pure talc (m ) had the lowest strength considered and was sufficiently weak to satisfy weak fault heat flow and stress orientation constraints with. Stresses along much of the San Andreas have been found to be perpendicular to the direction of the fault, so there is no stress driving the fault in those areas at this time.

Stress has built up along much of the San Andreas Fault and the San Jacinto Fault. It is likely that a major release of stress through an earthquake would trigger the release of stress along Author: Trevor Nace.
