Daniel White on what is going on with the famous San Andreas fault:
While scientists have long expected that parts of the state were moving along California’s longest earthquake fault, a study in the journal Nature Geoscience produced the first computer images confirming the phenomenon… while much of the Los Angeles Basin is sinking—by a mere two to three millimeters annually—that other areas to the north and west are rising, such as Santa Barbara and parts of San Bernardino County.
The end result?
Once the next big earthquake hits, Southern California’s different parts will jump back into place.
That might make for some big wave surfing from California to Hawaii.
