Earthquake information: The 3-D distribution of recent earthquakes beneath the Santa Clara Valley and vicinity is used to define the location and shape of active fault surfaces within the map volume. Active faults include the Calaveras fault, the Loma Prieta fault, the Mission/Hayward fault, a concealed basinward strand of the Monte Vista fault, and other faults in the region.
