Geoscientists find unexpected ‘deep creep’ near San Andreas, San Jacinto faults

Source: Science Daily

A new analysis of thousands of very small earthquakes in the San Bernardino basin suggests that the unusual deformation of some may be due to ‘deep creep’ 10 km below the Earth’s surface, say geoscientists. They say scientists should not use the information recorded by these small earthquakes to predict loading of the nearby San Andreas and San Jacinto faults.
