DS710 - Active traces of the Berryessa Fault

Interpretation of Geomorphic Features

The Earth's surface is transformed by movement along active faults, producing features that help us determine the location of the fault and are diagnostic of the fault's level of activity. Examples are provided in the block diagram below. Interpreted features such as these are indicated in shorthand on the map using codes and abbreviations.
