... rupture belt produced by the seven earthquakes occurring between 1915 and 1954 is unique in the available paleoseismic record. At the 1954 Fairview Peak fault, the lack of prehistorical faulting in deposits containing the Wilson Creek bed 19 tephra eliminates the possibility of an identical seismic belt...

... for this area by complex geology and by a scattered distribution of epicenters. A composite fault-plane solution is similar to those for large shocks at Fairview Peak and Rainbow Mountain in 1954, which shows that the same regional stress field is acting to produce earthquakes in both areas. The slope...
