Field Guide to the San Andreas Fault
Everything you ever wanted to know about the San Andreas Fault
This website is intended to be a comprehensive, plain-language source of information about all aspects of the San Andreas fault. The SAF is embedded in a large, complex state and does not exist independently of other faults and plate tectonics. In fact, more than any other US state, California is a product of recent tectonic activity. At SanAndreasFault.org you can learn to understand the fault and how to think about major geological events such as landslides, tsunamis and earthquakes.
