Book Description :

"This volume focuses on the continental intraplate region of the United States and provides an update and overview of documented Quaternary faulting and paleoseismic liquefaction east of the Rocky Mountains, and of the application of these results to seismic hazard and risk assessments. Contributions include papers that describe zones of newly recognized Quaternary deformation such as the East Tennessee Seismic Zone, as well as reinterpretations of well-known areas such as the New Madrid Seismic Zone. The chapters make important contributions to the recognition of earthquake sources active during the Quaternary and assess the seismic hazards posed by these sources. This volume should interest a wide range of readers from geology, seismology, hazard assessment, and emergency management"--Provided by publisher.

Book Description :

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 previous paleoseismic studies had been conducted on these faults. The information reported here on the size, timing, and recurrence of surface-faulting earthquakes on the West Cache fault zone is critical to public officials, planners, and others making decisions regarding earthquake-hazard mitigation in Cache Valley and the northern Wasatch front. 23 pages + 1 plate

Book Description :

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 others on the basis of their geologic mapping. This investigation was the last of the three studies performed. Those results, combined with the results of paleoseismic investigations at American Fork Canyon and Mapleton, showed that the Wasatch fault where it passes through Utah Valley probably consists of a single, almost 70-kilometer-Iong fault segment (Machette and others, 1992). Publication of the details of the Rock Canyon study has been delayed for several years, chiefly due to the press of new job duties on the part of the investigators. The information remains important and is presented here for the use of those individuals interested in earthquake hazards and seismic-source characteristics of the Wasatch fault in Utah Valley. 21 pages + 2 plates

Book Description :

The South Fork Dry Creek and Dry Gulch sites lie within a few hundred meters of each other in the southeastern part of the Salt Lake Valley, and together provide the only location on the heavily urbanized Salt Lake City segment of the Wasatch fault zone where it is possible to develop a complete surface-faulting chronology for the segment since middle Holocene time (the past 6,000 years). Investigations at the two sites took place intermittently between 1985 and 1995 as permission was obtained to trench more and more of the scarps within the broad fault zone. The new information reported here on the size, timing, and especially recurrence of surface-faulting earthquakes on the Salt Lake City segment shows that the earthquake hazard presented by this segment of the Wasatch fault is greater than previously thought. Such information is vital to public officials, planners, and others making decisions regarding earthquake-hazard mitigation. 22 pages + 1 plate

Book Description :

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 region's geologic and tectonic setting, earthquake sources, historical seismicity, and research methods used. This is followed by four sections summarizing paleoseismological research on the following indicators of possible past earthquakes: sea level changes, tsunamis and their deposits, liquefaction of ground, and landslides. The final sections are concerned with seismic hazards (ground motion, ground rupture, subsidence and flooding, tsunamis and seiches, liquefaction, landslides) and analysis of risk and recurrence of earthquakes.

Book Description :

This 43-page report presents new data from the Willow Creek site that provides well-defined and narrow bounds on the times of the three youngest earthquakes on the southern strand of the Nephi segment, Wasatch Fault zone, and refines the time of the youngest earthquake to about 200 years ago. This is the youngest surface rupture on the entire Wasatch fault zone, which occurred about a century or less before European settles arrived in Utah. Two trenches at the Willow Creek site exposed three scarp-derived colluvial wedges that are evidence of three paleoearthquakes. OxCal modeling of ages from Willow Creek indicate that paleoearthquake WC1 occurred at 0.2 ± 0.1 ka, WC2 occurred at 1.2 ± 0.1 ka, and WC3 occurred at 1.9 ± 0.6 ka. Stratigraphic constraints on the time of paleoearthquake WC4 are extremely poor, so OxCal modeling only yields a broadly constrained age of 4.7 ± 1.8 ka. Results from the Willow Creek site significantly refine the times of late Holocene earthquakes on the Southern strand of the Nephi segment, and this result, when combined with a reanalysis of the stratigraphic and chronologic information from previous investigations at North Creek and Red Canyon, yield a stronger basis of correlating individual earthquakes between all three sites.

Book Description :

Interdisciplinary study on the role of earthquakes in the eastern Mediterranean Does the “Minoan myth” still stand up to scientific scrutiny? Since the work of Sir Arthur Evans at Knossos (Crete, Greece), the romanticized vision of the Cretan Bronze Age as an era of peaceful prosperity only interrupted by the catastrophic effects of natural disasters has captured the popular and scientific imagination. Its impact on the development of archaeology, archaeoseismology, and earthquake geology in the eastern Mediterranean is considerable. Yet, in spite of more than a century of archaeological explorations on the island of Crete, researchers still do not have a clear understanding of the effects of earthquakes on Minoan society. This volume, gathering the contributions of Minoan archaeologists, geologists, seismologists, palaeoseismologists, geophysicists, architects, and engineers, provides an up-to-date interdisciplinary appraisal of the role of earthquakes in Minoan society and in Minoan archaeology – what we know, what are the remaining issues, and where we need to go.

Book Description :

This report presents the results of the Utah Quaternary Fault Parameters Working Group (hereafter referred to as the Working Group) review and evaluation of Utah’s Quaternary fault paleoseismic-trenching data. The purpose of the review was to (1) critically evaluate the accuracy and completeness of the paleoseismictrenching data, particularly regarding earthquake timing and displacement, (2) where the data permit, assign consensus, preferred recurrence-interval (RI) and vertical slip-rate (VSR) estimates with appropriate confidence limits to the faults/fault sections under review, and (3) identify critical gaps in the paleoseismic data and recommend where and what kinds of additional paleoseismic studies should be performed to ensure that Utah’s earthquake hazard is adequately documented and understood. It is important to note that, with the exception of the Great Salt Lake fault zone, the Working Group’s review was limited to faults/fault sections having paleoseismic-trenching data. Most Quaternary faults/fault sections in Utah have not been trenched, but many have RI and VSR estimates based on tectonic geomorphology or other non-trench-derived studies. Black and others compiled the RI and VSR data for Utah’s Quaternary faults, both those with and without trenches.
