How can an engineering geologist find an active fault?


This talk will summarize techniques my students and I use to find the ground-surface trace of seismogenic/active faults. It will emphasize the ideas of geoscience to benefit society, the primacy principle of protecting human life/safety, the comingling of basic fieldwork with analysis of geophysical data (relocated earthquake hypocenter data, earthquake focal mechanisms, GPS geodesy, LiDAR-based geomorphic analysis), and the virtue of continuing education throughout a geoscientist's career.
