California has plenty of faults, seismic faults that is. They shear the Golden State into ribbons and have largely crafted California's geologically diverse and dynamic landscape. With humor and ease, Finding Fault in California leads the earthquake curious to the state's most accessible, active, and earth-shaping faults and tells the stories behind the major temblors that have shaken the region.

The book begins with a discussion about what faults are and how to recognize them. The geologic tours follow, exploring the seismic hazards of the Los Angeles Basin, the San Francisco Bay Area, central California, the Mojave Desert, a neighborhood that is slowly being wrenched in two by the creeping Calaveras fault, and a now-landscaped surface rupture from the 1971 San Fernando quake in a McDonald's parking lot, giving new meaning to an order for burgers and shakes. Photos, maps, and diagrams, most with precise GPS coordinates, illustrate the conversational text. Entertaining sidebars highlight the often ingenious methods of modern fault-finding researchers.

  • BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier with BelOMO Woven Logo Lanyard

    BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier with Deluxe BelOMO Woven Logo Lanyard

    All new design for the lanyard. The lanyard can now be install and removed without tools.

    Softer design with double sided logo. Most lanyards have the logo on one side only.

    We sell a lot of loupes to customers who have lost their loupe in the field. Using a lanyard keeps the loupe handy and with you rather than sitting near that last rock you examined. Now.... where was that?

    Here is a heavy duty 3/4" nylon loupe lanyard with a quick release buckle. Disconnect the buckle when you don't need the neck lanyard. But don't set the loupe down and walk way!

    This lanyard may be used for any purpose but we've had it custom manufactured specifically for use with the BelOMO loupe. Open the buckle to remove and swing the BelOMO loupe open to remove to lanyard. Open the buckle, swing the loupe open, slip the the long side of the buckle around the post, close the buckle and close the loupe and the lanyard is installed.<
