Large-scale motion detected near San Andreas Fault
Analysis of GPS data has revealed new areas of motion around the San Andrea’s Fault System.

Using data collected by the EarthScope Plate Boundary Observatory’s GPS array, researchers identified 125-mile-wide “lobes” of uplift and subsidence. Over the last several years, the lobes, which straddle the fault line, have hosted a few millimeters of annual movement.
