Blind Thrust Faults; Earthquake Damage; Earthquake Effects; Los Angeles; Northridge Thrust Fault; Oakridge Fault System; Pico Thrust Fault; San Andreas Fault; San Fernando ValleyCalifornia State University, Northridge parking structure that partially collapsed during the 1994 earthquake. Scientists believe it was the lack of shear walls, being precast, and lack of extra steel reinforcements in vertical columns that led to the damage seen here. This is 5km northeast of the epicenter. P.W. Weigand.

Damage; Geologic Hazards; Gilbert Inlet; Glaciers; Landslides; Lituya Bay; Mass Movements; Mass Wasting; Rockslides; Seiches; Seismology; SurgesAt the head of Lituya Bay in August 1958 a large rockslide plunged into Gilbert Inlet at lower right corner, shearing off part of the front of Lituya Glacier and causing water to surge over the spur opposite. The trimlines slope down to right, across scars of slides that occurred before the 1958 earthquake.

Active Faults; Blackwater Little Lake Fault; Deformation; Displacements; Earthquakes; Eastern California Shear Zone; Fault Zones; Faults; Garlock Fault; Interferometry; Radar Methods; Seismicity; Slip RatesMap indicating movements of earthquake fault zones in Southern California's eastern Mojave Desert. Faults include the Blackwater Little Lake and Garlock Faults of the Eastern California shear zone. Stain accumulation and stress transfer between these faults produces earthquakes.
