...Howard Shifflett; Robert Witbaard Abstract We present evidence for several temporally related premonitory movements preceding the Landers earthquake of 28 June 1992. Premonitory movements were measured at alignment arrays spanning the northeast, Painted Canyon, and San Andreas faults in Mecca Hills...

... of the Silent Canyon caldera complex. Volcanism in the SWNVF coincided with the Miocene peak of extensional deformation in adjoining parts of the Great Basin. Although regional extension was concurrent with volcanism, it was at a minimum in the central area of the SWNVF, where synvolcanic faulting was dominated...
