    We mapped sections of the north trending faults in a km long left-stepping fault array. Starting in the south, the San Jose del Cabo fault (east dipping) bounds the ~2 km high Sierra La Laguna.

Rubin. Activity on this fault influences offshore faults that parallel the Pacific coast from Ensenada to Los Angeles and is a potential threat to communities in northern Mexico and southern California. We present a detailed Quaternary slip history for the ABF, including new quantitative constraints on geologic slip rates, slip-per-event, the timing.

Quaternary movement along the La Jencia fault, central New Mexico by Michael N Machette Download PDF EPUB FB2

From abstract: The La Jencia fault is a recently reactivated late Cenozoic basin margin structure of major proportions that forms the western margin of the Rio Grande rift, which borders the eastern sides of the northern Magdalena Mountains and the southern Bear Mountains in central New by: Quaternary movement along the La Jencia fault, central New Mexico.

[Michael N Machette; Geological Survey (U.S.)] -- A detailed study of movement along a late Quaternary fault of the Rio Grande rift utilizing geologic mapping, exploratory trenches, soil development, laboratory analyses, and fault-scarp morphology.

The La Jencia and Albuquerque-Belen basins are two of the main structural depressions in the central part of the Rio Grande rift of New Mexico.

Within these two basins are many faults that displace basin- fill deposits of Pliocene and Quaternary age and surficial deposits of middle and late Quaternary age. Both ranges have embayed range-fronts, suggesting a lack of significant Quaternary faulting.

However, La Jencia fault forms the tectonic margin between the mountains to the west and the Cenozoic La Jencia basin to the east.

Length This field specifies two types of length data. The first is the end-to-end length of the Quaternary-age fault as measured from the most distal ends of the digital data. The "World Map of Major Active Faults" Task Group is compiling a series of digital maps for the United States and other countries in the Western Hemisphere that show the locations, ages, and activity rates of major earthquake-related features such as faults and fault-related folds; the companion database includes published information on these seismogenic features.

Randy Keller, Steven M. Cather. The offshore Carrizal fault lies km east of the western edge of La Paz Bay, forming a right step from the onshore Carrizal fault. The offshore Carrizal fault is the oldest fault of the fault system, and the fault likely grew in the latest Miocene to Pliocene in a complex way to the south toward the onshore Centenario and Carrizal faults.

The Water Canyon site (LA) is located in west-central New Mexico (Figure 1), on lands managed by the Energetic Materials Testing and Research Center (EMRTC), a division of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, Socorro, New Mexico. As such, the property on which the site is located has restricted public access.

Even though independent rupture segments are defined in the literature for the La Jencia fault based on based on the continuity of scarps and inferred timing of the most recent surface-faulting earthquakes (Machette, ), the source extends across both segments.

Introduction. Current stress conditions of the continental crust in central Mexico have commonly been inferred from structural features such as fault trends, alignment of shield volcanoes, orientation of major dikes, well elongations, etc., (e.g.

ages of soils based on correlation with soils near Las Cruces in southern New Mexico; (2) use of surface age-fault offset relationships to constrain the age of most-recent fault movement and to estimate the frequency of movement along individual faults; and (3) morphologic analyses of fault File Size: KB.The 35 km long La Jencia fault falls just inside the western boundary of the SSA.

Using the relations of Wells and Coppersmith (), we believe the observations by Machette () on the scarps of the La Jencia fault can be explained qualitatively by the movements of five moment magnitude earthquakes in the p years.The Cerro GoDen fault zone is associated with a curvilinear, continuous, and prominent topographic lineament in western Puerto Rico.
