USGS publication on the San Andreas Fault

Next week I'll be at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco, where I have co-organized a session on Magnetism of Glassy Materials.

I may fly over the Carrizo Plains, where one can get a beautiful view of the San Andreas Fault, and see how it has offset stream channels in a right lateral strike skip fashion (see photo at right).

One can read up on the San Andreas Fault in the U.S Geological Society Professional Paper 1515, edited by Robert E. Wallace, available online.
