Sleeping Giant Earthquake Threat Publication

The Wasatch Front in northern Utah is home to the striking Wasatch Range, numerous cities and communities that house about 80% of Utah’s population, and the most continuous, active normal fault in the
conterminous United States––the Wasatch fault zone.  Although no large earthquakes have ruptured the Wasatch fault zone historically, the fault has a well-documented history of numerous surface-faulting earthquakes in the recent geologic past.

Click and download this report compiled in April, 2013 and presented from the Seismology Society of America for some fascinating facts and a look at potential future developments.
