Abstract

Every earthquake on, or close to, the San Andreas fault, no matter how small, seems to renew interest in this intriguing geologic feature. Is it true, as the newspapers usually say, that these earthquakes represent the San Andreas's "periodic shrug"? What is the San Andreas fault, and what do geologists and seismologists expect in the way of future activity?
