The ShakeOut Scenario
Perfect timing for this study! Hot on the heels of the China quake, California seismologists have released the most detailed earthquake scenario yet. This is for a 300 km strike-slip earthquake. This type of earthquake doesn't hit as hard as a China Superquake, but is a long rumbler, perfect for activating California basins.
