Digital Database of Faulting Accompanying the 1966 Parkfield, California, Earthquake

Digital database prepared by Christopher J. Crosby


map of Parkfield area showing rupture lines

This digital map database is prepared from a previously published map by Lienkaemper and Brown (1985). The fault database delineates tectonic ground rupture associated with the 1966 Parkfield, California earthquake and observation localities along the surface rupture where geologic data were gathered. Our goal is to provide earthquake scientists working along the San Andreas fault near Parkfield with a digital version of the Lienkaemper and Brown (1985) map that may be used for field work, input to geophysical models, and for comparison with future Parkfield earthquakes.
