Faults that represent a hazard of surface rupture are included in Alquist-Priolo Earthquake Fault Zones. Also see Fault Activity Map of California. Earthquake probabilities are calculated by projecting earthquake rates based on earthquake history and fault slip rates. The result is expressed as the probability that an earthquake of a specified magnitude will occur on a fault or within an area.
Earthquake shaking hazards are calculated considering earthquake magnitudes and rates, the decrease in earthquake shaking with distance, and amplification of shaking by soils. The result is expressed as the level of ground shaking as a percentage of gravity that on average occurs every 2, years.
The effects of potential earthquakes are described by statewide earthquake loss estimation and planning scenarios. An earthquake planning scenario is a description of a hypothetical earthquake, including projected ground shaking, damage, social disruption and economic losses.

A mysterious, bubbling mud geyser is on the move in southern California, flitting dangerously close to railroad tracks, Highway and some very expensive optic cables like a geologic poltergeist, according to news sources. Yes, California will have a big earthquake, but the chances of "the big one" happening now didn't suddenly increase.
Here's a look at the tectonic plates that made the 7.
A quake in Mexico had a surprisingly positive outcome for archaeologists. Earthquakes Earthquakes are the result of plate tectonics, or shifting plates in the crust of Earth, and quakes occur when the frictional stress of gliding plate boundaries builds and causes failure at a fault line.
