This map shows the potential of widespread slope failures, in terms of Newmark displacement (measured in centimeters), triggered by a M7.0 scenario earthquake on the Hayward Fault in the 10-county area surrounding the San Francisco Bay region, California. The cumulative downslope displacement of hillslopes is calculated using a simplified Newmark rigid sliding block slope stability model utilizing four primary datasets: a regional-scale geologic map of the study area, geologic strength parameters compiled as part of the California Geological Survey Seismic Hazard Mapping Program, earthquake shaking data from the USGS ShakeMap developed for this scenario, and 10-meter digital elevation data from the USGS 2009 National...

This map shows the potential of widespread slope failures, in terms of landslide probability, triggered by a M7.0 scenario earthquake on the Hayward Fault in the 10-county area surrounding the San Francisco Bay region, California. The likelihood of landsliding was evaluated using an equation developed by Jibson and others (2000) that estimates landslide probability as a function of predicted Newmark displacement. Based on this equation, four landslide probability categories are established with their corresponding percent likelihood and displacement ranges: Low (0-2%; 0-1 cm), Moderate (2-15%; 1-5 cm), High (15-32%; 5-15 cm), and Very High (>32%; >15 cm).The seismic-landslide probability map covers the counties...
