Earthquake Ages and Displacements, Frazier Mountain Paleoseismic Site
The Frazier Mountain paleoseismic site is located on a poorly understood section of the southern San Andreas fault, mid-way between the well-known Carrizo Plain and Mojave sites of Bidart Fan and Pallett Creek. Emerging paleoseismic evidence indicates that earthquakes along this stretch repeat at a similar pace, with an average interval of - 122 years between AD. 1000 and 1857.
