News Land around the San Andreas fault is rising and sinking

  1. For the first time, scientists have produced a computer image showing huge sections of California rising and sinking around the San Andreas fault.

    The vertical movement is the result of seismic strain that will be ultimately released in a large earthquake.

    The San Andreas fault is California’s longest earthquake fault, and one of the state’s most dangerous. Scientists have long expected that parts of California are rising — and other parts sinking — around the fault in a way that is ongoing, very subtle and extremely slow.

    Such vertical movement makes a lot of sense. California sits on the border of two gigantic tectonic plates — the Pacific and North American — that are constantly grinding past each other.

    'Seismic strain': Land around the San Andreas fault is rising and sinking, new earthquake research shows

    :okay: Love ya'll.
  2. Looks we need to meet before that happens. :downer:
  3. I'm down. :gusta: :ksi:

  4. I actually had a opportunity to go to SD but my fam left without me. :sad1: I wanna meet you and @Harley Quinn so bad.
  5. You're still in San Fran? That's not TOO far.

    Spoilers: I'm a freak.
  6. Yeah, I'm still in SF. It isn't too bad. I've been to SD before, but that was way before I was on WWEF, lol. Hopefully my fam decides to visit soon again. My aunt's boyfriend is really keen on sailing so they like going down there just to sail.

  7. There have been talks since the late 60's I believe about Cali getting swallowed by the ocean. I think it will take time for this to happen. I honestly don't know what to believe anymore cause there are so many fear tactics everywhere.
