... the seismotectonic framework of the northern Los Angeles basin as revealed by previous moderate earthquakes. The Chino Hills mainshock-aftershock sequence began at a depth of about 15 km in the east Los Angeles area at 11:42 am (PST) ( Figure 1 ). The epicenter is between two mapped faults: the Whittier fault...

... of the Chino Valley area. This sag probably formed a basin of deposition for sediments of the Supai formation as did the Cordilleran geosyncline to which it was connected. If this interpretation is correct, the predominant direction of cross-lamination should swing westward nearer the Cordilleran geosyncline...

.... The 2008 Chino Hills earthquake was felt by many people throughout the Los Angeles basin and the surrounding areas although there was very little damage ( Hauksson et al. 2008 ). The largest observed PGA and PGV for the event were 0.44g and 38 cm/s, respectively ( CalTrans 2008 ). We simulated...

... amplitude and the long duration of shaking seen in the observed waveforms recorded on sediments, whereas paths outside the basin may be well fit by more homogeneous (1D) hard rock structure. We conclude that the new model is suited for simulation of wave propagation, mostly for T >3 s, and may serve well...

...Eugene Greenwood Abstract Oil and gas have been found in the Pedregosa basin area, but it is not known if they are in commercial quantities. Geologists such as Kottlowski, Wengerd, Foster, and Zeller have suggested the oil potential of various zones. Analogies have been drawn between environmental...

We compare the effects of different power-law exponents using a finite-fault source model of the 2008 M w 5.4 Chino Hills, California, earthquake and find that Q ( f ) models generally better fit the strong-motion data than the constant Q models for frequencies above 1 Hz.

These deposits range in age from Late Cretaceous to Miocene or younger and range in size from a few tons of low-grade material up to tens of millions of tons of 10% or greater lead and zinc. Most lead-zinc deposits in carbonate rocks in New Mexico are spatially...

Finally, in what ways may shallow subduction precondition the affected region to later increments of deformation (e.g., uplift of the Colorado Plateau, extension in the Basin and Range, and delamination)?

We study the relationships that exist between 11 metrics and carry out a process where these metrics are understood...
