Geologic Hazards Technical Information

Geologic Hazard Maps
Geologic Hazard MapsGeologic-hazard maps generally show areas that may be subject to the effects of earthquakes, landslides, debris flows, rock falls, poor soil conditions, radon, or floods.
Geologic Hazard Publications
Geologic Hazard PublicationsGeologic-hazard publications report on areas that may be subject to the effects of earthquakes, landslides, debris flows, rock falls, poor soil conditions, radon, or floods.
Site Specific Geologic Hazard Studies
Site Specific Geologic Hazard StudiesPublished site-specific evaluations from 1983 to 2010 for critical public facilities and field investigations of potential geologic hazards.
Paleoseismology of Utah
Paleoseismology of UtahPublication series providing paleoearthquake information which can be used to characterize potential seismic sources and evaluate the seismic hazard presented by Utah’s faults.
