...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...

...Kerry E. Sieh abstract Analysis of contemporary accounts indicates that several small to moderate central California 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...

... is considered locked, and in modern times it has been nearly devoid of seismicity. Many authors have stated that the last significant event on the southern San Andreas was the 9 January 1857 M W 7.9 Fort Tejon earthquake, which occurred on the Carrizo and Mojave segments of the fault. Yet if the 1916 event...

...Tousson Toppozada; David Branum Abstract The Parkfield–Cholame region, 40 to 60 km southeast of Priest Valley, lies near the junction of two contrasting segments of the San Andreas fault. To the southeast is the ∼350-km locked segment that had up to 9-m displacements in the 1857 earthquake of M 7.9...

.... The relocated earthquakes tend to cluster just southeast of the 2004 mainshock hypocenter (red star in Fig.  4 ). In addition, we observe a deepening of seismicity under CH, close to the northern edge of the 1857 M w  7.8 Fort Tejon rupture ( Sieh, 1978 ; Simpson et al. , 2006 ). Relocated earthquake depths...
