USGS, Wiley


Find a USGS animation showing the conditions leading to a San Francisco Bay area bedrock landslide. The scene begins with a flyby of the Bay Area showing the considerable relief of the region. The focus then shifts to the subsurface conditions, an impermeable rock layer above a permeable rock layer, responsible for creating a landslide after a period of rain. Expect long loading times.
