Project Abstract
Intellectual Merit This project has contributed by providing new data regarding the timing and temporal patterns of earthquakes on one of the major faults in southern California. The new data will be used to better estimate earthquake hazards and to test ideas regarding rupture patterns within the southern San Andreas system and relationships between the San Andreas and San Jacinto faults.
Broader Impacts This project has contributed by providing research experience to undergraduate and graduate students from CSULB, CSUSB, and SDSU. Several SCEC interns were also involved and one took a major role and presented his work at the SCEC annual meeting (2010). This work has also been incorporated into classes taught by Onderdonk at CSULB. The project has strengthened collaborations between the principle universities involved as well as triggering involvement of new collaborators with the installation of a creep meter at the site by R. Bilham. The benefits to society include the generation of new data and interpretations regarding the earthquake history of the northern San Jacinto fault zone, which will improve our earthquake hazard estimates for the area.
