This map describes the possible hazard from earthquake-induced landslides for the city of Berkeley, CA. The hazard depicted by this map was modeled for a scenario corresponding to an M=7.1 earthquake on the Hayward, CA fault. This scenario magnitude is associated with complete rupture of the northern and southern segments of the Hayward fault, an event that has an estimated return period of about 500 years. The modeled hazard also corresponds to completely saturated ground-water conditions resulting from an extreme storm event or series of storm events. This combination of earthquake and ground-water scenarios represents a particularly severe state of hazard for earthquake- induced landslides. For dry ground-water...

The northern part of the map area and large adjacent regions havebeen severely shaken by one or more moderate to large prehistoricearthquakes. The evidence of these takes the form ofpaleoliquefaction features, including shaking-induced sandblows anddikes that fed them.Over several summer field seasons from 1990 through 1994,several workers searched ditches and river banks for evidenceof liquefaction. They found numerous dikes and sandblows.This database includes the locations and descriptions of dikes theyobserved and measured.The most widespread paleoliquefaction is attributed to amid-Holocene earthquake near what is now Vicennes, IN, with anestimated moment- magnitude of about 7.5. Stratigraphic,geomorphological,...

The evidence of these takes the form of paleoliquefactionfeatures, including shaking-induced sandblows and dikes that fed them.Over several summer field seasons between 1990 and 1994, Cheryl andPat Munson, along with several of their students, searched ditchesand river banks for evidence of liquefaction. They found numerousbanks with shaking-induced sandblows and the dikes that fed them.This database includes the location of dikes thatthe Munsons and those with them observed and measured. Dike thicknesswas divided into 5 classes, 1 being the smallest at 0-4 cm, 2 = 5-14 cm,3...

Album caption and index card: Madison River below the landslide. The outlet channel across the slide dam at this time had been lowered about 50 feet from its original position, thus draining part of Earthquake Lake. View downstream from gage 2 showing erosion of bank and highway. Montana earthquake area, Montana. October 28, 1959. Photo no. 5 published as figure 93-B in U.S. Geological Survey. Professional paper 435. 1964.
