Historical seismic activity and the geologic record of young faulting both suggest that there is significant seismic hazard in the Flagstaff area. Geologic investigations of young faults provide information about large prehistoric earthquakes in an area, which can be used with the historical seismic record to evaluate the potential for dam. Plio-Quaternary Faulting and Seismic Hazard in the Flagstaff Area, Northern Arizona Philip A. Pearthree, Kirk R. Vincent, Richard Brazier, David M. Hendricks Arizona Geological Survey Bulletin Report prepared in cooperation with the Arizona Earthquake Preparedness Program, Arizona Division of Emergency Management. Data describing the locations, slip rates, and lengths of Quaternary faults are the primary basis in this work for constructing maps that characterize seismic hazard in California. The expected seismic moment M 0 e and the strength of ground shaking resulting from the entire rupture of each mapped fault (or fault segment) are estimated using Cited by: Pearthree, P.A., , Late Quaternary Faulting and Seismic Hazard in Southeastern Arizona and Adjacent Portions of New Mexico and Sonora, Mexico.

Created Date: 12/21/ AM. The seismicity of the Blue Ridge area of the Mogollon Plateau exists within a framework of Tertiary volcanics and normal faulting. The seismicity includes earthquake sequences in and with principal events as large as Richter local magnitude (M L) (National Earthquake Information Center [NEIC]).Analysis of this seismicity indicates that it is characterized by normal faulting on.

To understand the risk that different areas of the U.S. face for earthquake hazards, we need to know where faults are and how they behave. We know a fault exists only if it has produced an earthquake or it has left a recognizable mark on the earth’s surface. Once a fault has been identified, the next step is to determine how it behaves.
