Abstract

This map gives an overview of geologically young faults and is intended to help in evaluation of the potential activity of faulting nationally. This map is a progress report. Because of its scale, it cannot be used as an index of specific faults or fault hazards. However, it offers a synopsis, as of 1975, of more extensive data that must be taken into consideration in assessments of hazards from faulting.
