  • Hayward Fault Earthquake Simulations Increase Fidelity of Ground Motions

    Hayward Fault Earthquake Simulations Increase Fidelity of Ground Motions

    9 February 2018

    In the next 30 years, there is a one-in-three chance that the Hayward fault will rupture with a 6.7 magnitude or higher earthquake, according to the United States Geologic Survey (USGS). Such an earthquake will cause widespread damage to structures, transportation and utilities, as well as economic and social disruption in the East Bay. Lawrence Livermore and Lawrence Berkeley national laboratory scientists have used some of the more
