Tracing the Hayward Fault: Online and On the Ground

Ever wonder exactly where the Hayward Fault is located? Three new educational publications will show you just where to look. A field trip guidebook, online virtual tour, and factsheet aimed at increasing awareness of the greater Bay Area's most hazardous and urbanized fault are available courtesy of USGS scientists. The 140th anniversary of the 1868 Hayward earthquake this October 21 marks an important milestone the past five large earthquakes on the Hayward Fault have been about 140 years apart on average, and a repeat of this powerful earthquake could happen at any moment. A recent report indicates that the Hayward Fault is the most likely fault to produce a magnitude-6.7 or larger earthquake in the greater Bay Area in the next 30 years. The field trip guidebook is available online at http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2008/1135/, the online virtual tour at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/regional/nca/1868virtualtour/, and the factsheet at http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/2008/3019/.
