Abstract

A total magnetic intensity survey in the northeastern Pacific Ocean revealed a north-south pattern of magnetic anomalies, which is cut through by the Murray, the Pioneer, and the Mendocino faults. The amount of slip along these faults is measured by fitting the magnetic anomaly pattern across the faults. The combined left-lateral displacement across the Mendocino and the Pioneer faults is 1420 km.
