Tour of the Hayward Fault

Sue Hirschfeld, California State University Hayward

This photographic tour of the Hayward Fault presents images of some of the most easily recognized surface features, from the City of Fremont in central California toward the southern end of the fault, across the Oakland-Berkeley region, northward to Point Pinole on the margin of San Pablo Bay. The history of earthquakes in the region and potential damage is discussed.
