... the 1857 earthquake and plate tectonic loading. The postseismic displacements have been calculated using a elastic / viscoelastic coupling model that, for any fault geometry, yields the exact displacements on a spherically stratified Earth. The southern California crust and upper mantle are modeled...

...Kebby E. Sieh abstract Historical records indicate that several meters of lateral slip along the San Andreas fault accompanied the great 1857 earthquake in central and southern California. These records, together with dendrochronological evidence, suggest that the rupture occurred along 360 to 400...

... and southern California. INTRODUCTION One intriguing aspect of many contemporary accounts of the great California earthquake of January 9, 1857 is the mention of shocks felt during the several hours prior to the main earthquake. If indeed these were foreshocks, their location might indicate the epicentral...

... ), and Stoffer ( 2005 ). The creeping section of the San Andreas fault zone lies between areas that experienced large-displacement surface breakage during great earthquakes in 1857 and 1906 (Fig. 1 inset). Burford and Harsh ( 1980 ) divided the creeping section into three segments: (1) a northwest section...

A pair of major earthquakes occurred on the northern region, where the 1906 faulting overlapped the 1838 earthquake faulting. Also, earthquakes of M ∼7 occurred in the San...

... that the fault has low frictional strength. Thus, along these two major sections of the San Andreas fault (which produced great earthquakes in southern California in 1857 and central and northern California in 1906), the frictional strength of the fault is much lower than expected for virtually any common rock...

...Michel Bouchon; Keiiti Aki abstract Using the fault slip determined by Sieh (1978a), the great 1857 California earthquake is modeled as a propagating fault buried in a realistic medium consisting of a two-layer crust overlying the mantle. The computation is carried out by the discrete wavenumber...

... Shelter Cove on 11 August 1907. An M ∼4.9 aftershock occurred on the creeping segment of the San Andreas fault (southeast of the mainshock rupture) on 6 July 1906. The 1906 San Francisco earthquake also triggered events in southern California (including separate events in or near the Imperial Valley...

...Homer J. Steiny; John P. Buwalda ABSTRACT The July 21, 1952, Arvin (Tehachapi) earthquake, the strongest shock in Southern California since 1857, presumably resulted from movement on the northeast-southwest-trending White Wolf fault near the south end of the San Joaquin valley. The southwest half...
