Surface Creep on California Faults

Roger Bilham, Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), University of Colorado

This site provides data from a number of creepmeters in California. A creepmeter is an instrument that monitors the slow surface displacement of an active fault. Its function is not to measure fault slip during earthquakes, but to record the slow aseismic slip between earthquakes.
