Fault Behavior and Characteristic Earthquakes: Examples From the Wasatch and San Andreas Fault Zones
Paleoseismological data for the Wasatch and San Andreas fault zones have led to the formulation of the characteristic earthquake model, which postulates that individual faults and fault segments tend to generate essentially same size or characteristic earthquakes having a relatively narrow range of magnitudes near the maximum.
