We live in a land of earthquakes. Learn how they work from an expert. This is a survey of California earthquakes and earthquake dynamics. You will learn about various historical earthquakes, major fault systems throughout California as well as earthquake dynamics and interpretation of seismograms (locating epicenters and calculating magnitude of earthquakes). We will have an 8-hour field tip, within the Carrizo Plain, investigating various geomorphic features along the San Andreas Fault system, ending in the city of Parkfield ---“The earthquake capitol.”
