Abstract

The San Andreas fault is arguably the best-studied strike-slip fault in the world, and our understanding of its evolution continues to improve as new data become available. This trip will take the participants to a selection of some classical as well as some new sites that will highlight a revised understanding of the San Andreas fault's recent history based on our geomorphological, paleoseismologic, and paleoclimate investigations.
