Paleoseismology of Utah Series

Compilation of U.S. Geological Survey National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program Final Technical Reports for Utah; Utah Geological Survey Miscellaneous Publication 13-3

This series provides critical information regarding paleoearthquake parameters such as earthquake timing, recurrence, displacement, slip rate, and fault geometry, which can be used to characterize potential seismic sources and evaluate the long-term seismic hazard presented by Utah’s Quaternary faults.
