Earthquakes in Southern California: A View from Space - Perspectives on Ocean Science

11/10/2010; 51 minutes

Southern California hosts a number of active faults. Over the last 20 years, it has become the most seismically active area in the Western states, with magnitude 7 or greater events occurring around the (in)famous San Andreas fault.
