Geological Cross-sectionSlide5

General breakdown:

Baymud

:

flat area near bay- marshland

Unconsolidated sediments:

area that is flat toward the hills- sediment from hills filling in basin

Bedrock

: hills (not all hills are stable but for this discussion we will assume this)Slide6

San Jose State University

San Jose State is built on unconsolidated sediments and is surrounded by mountains (bedrock).Slide7
Slide8

Earth

Materials and ground shakingSlide9

When the Bay Area Quakes

Understand general earthquake hazards

Know the general location of faults in the Bay Area

Have a general idea of the topography and earth materials of the Bay Area

Movie: specific locations of hazards; structural failures (Cypress structure addressed); forecasting

eqs

- recurrence interval and

seismic gap
