Two New Maps Offer New Look at Hazards and Geologic History of the Greater San Francisco Bay Area
"The first map/poster updates the locations of all faults in the Bay Area known to have deformed the Earth�s surface during the past 2 million years using the latest, most detailed digital mapping. The most hazardous faults include those that broke during historic earthquakes in 1868, 1906, and 1989, along the San Andreas and Hayward faults. The second map/poster shows the Bay Area's geologic materials and structures, which is in part derived from the new map of young (Quaternary) geologic deposits announced by the USGS last February. This poster reveals the complicated geologic history that has led to the landscape that shapes the Bay Area. This new USGS poster is unique in the United States for its level of detail and scope of coverage for a major urban area.
