... of the event indicator ( Appendix A ). Our ranking system borrows heavily from the system developed by Seitz (1999) for the Pitman Canyon, California, paleoseismic site, but has been adapted for the style of deformation expressed in the old section at Wrightwood. The old section exhibits a wide variety...

... earthquake records. Here we use statistical tests on a 3000 yr combined record of 29 ground-rupturing earthquakes from Wrightwood, California. We show that earthquake recurrence there is more regular than expected from a Poisson distribution and is not clustered, leading us to conclude that recurrence...

The system strikes northwest and is composed of at least seven major faults linked by numerous smaller faults, making this one of the most complex surface ruptures ever documented along the Pacific–North America plate boundary. Rupture propagated bilaterally through...
