Paleoseismology has become an important component of seismic risk analysis, which is mandated for nuclear power plants, dams, waste repositories, and other critical structures. This book is the first in the English language to be devoted solely to paleoseismology. It summarizes the development of the field from the 1960s to the present, encompassing material that is currently widely dispersed in journal articles. * Includes a comprehensive review of the techniques currently used in paleoseismology * Emphasizes practical methods of data collection and field studies * Covers interpretation of field data based on current theory concerning fault segmentation and recurrence cycles * Contains more than 170 line drawings and 50 photographs of paleoseismic phenomena

Paleoseismic Investigation of the Clarkston  Junction Hills  and Wellsville Faults  West Cache Fault Zone  Cache County  Utah

Field work for this paleoseismic investigation was performed in 1997 at three sites (Winter Canyon, Roundy Farm, and Deep Canyon) on the Clarkston, Junction Hills, and Wellsville faults. These faults, along with several lesser associated faults nearby, comprise the West Cache fault zone on the west side of Cache Valley. No

Paleoseismic Investigation at Rock Canyon  Provo Segment  Wasatch Fault Zone  Utah County  Utah

Field work for this paleoseismic investigation at Rock Canyon was performed in 1988. It was one of three studies conducted in the late 1980s and early 1990s to determine if the Provo segment of the Wasatch fault zone should be subdivided into three smaller segments as tentatively proposed by Machette and

Paleoseismology and Seismic Hazards  Southwestern British Columbia

The historical and geological record indicate that the earthquake hazard in south-western British Columbia is relatively high. This bulletin presents results of a major paleoseismological investigation consisting of several related interdisciplinary studies that extend the seismic record of the region into prehistory. Three introductory sections contain background material on the
