...Olaf Zielke; J Ramón Arrowsmith; Lisa Grant Ludwig; Sinan O. Akciz Abstract The great Fort Tejon earthquake of 1857, with an ∼350‐km‐long surface rupture, was the most recent major earthquake along the south‐central San Andreas fault ( SAF ). Prior reconstruction of its surface‐slip distribution...

... and to estimate magnitudes for the largest foreshocks and aftershocks of the 1857 M 7.9 Fort Tejon earthquake on the central and southern segments of the fault. We began by searching archived first-hand accounts from 1857 through 1862, by grouping felt reports temporally, and by assigning modified Mercalli...

... earthquakes preceded the great 1857 earthquake by 1 to 9 hr. The earliest events apparently were felt only in the San Francisco area or the Sacramento and Sierran Foothills region. Two later and much more widely felt foreshocks were experienced within the region bounded by San Francisco, Visalia, Fort Tejon...

...Hiroo Kanamori abstract Predictability of long-period (1 sec or longer) ground motions generated by long strike-slip earthquakes such as the 1906 San Francisco and the 1857 Fort Tejon earthquakes, is investigated. Most large earthquakes are complex multiple events at this period range...

... that offset at this location in the 1857 M w 7.8 Fort Tejon earthquake was ∼ 4 m . Therefore, offset in the penultimate earthquake is < ∼ 8 m at the VMR site because we cannot discount that T2 channel sediments experienced four earthquakes. Interestingly, buried channel ages are older at other trenches...
