A SCEC VDO illustration of the faults of Los Angeles. Google Earth map showing the stops of our field trip.
Professor Dolan leads the SCEC interns infront of Griffith Observatory, followed by Michael Ihrig and Elena Soto. View of LA skyline as seen from Griffith Observatory. Professor Dolan shows the interns a map for Southern California, while interns Jakayla Walker and Brian Anderson hold the map. The Hollywood Sign sits atop the Hollywood Hills that were created by the Santa Monica Fault.
View down Vine St. showing the scarp of the Hollywood Fault. Capital Records building located by Hollywood Blvd. that often gets destroyed in earthquake movies. SCEC interns stand at the intersection of Hollywood and Vine as they listen to their guide, Professor James Dolan. (Photo: Kaitlin Welch)
The view down the hill created by the Hollywood Fault from Runyon Canyon Park. Professor Dolan lectures to the SCEC interns about the Hollywood Fault. Professor Dolan indicates the Hollywood fault on the map to the SCEC interns.
In the center of Lacy Park, the grass dips into a basin that is created by the Raymond Fault. The entrance to Lacy Park is located on Virginia Road in San Marino, California. Professor Dolan discusses the bend in the Raymond Fault which resulted in Wilson Lake in the late 1800s.
View from the path above JPL. Professor James Dolan uses a shovel to try and uncover the Sierra Madre Fault trace that was covered during the recent landslides. A white-colored outcrop of bedrock is visible on the San Gabriel Mountains.
The Sierra Madre Fault is located approximately on the violet colored line. The green shows the plane of the fault dipping at 45 degrees.
SCEC interns duck, cover and hold on practicing for the next Big One (Photo: Kaitlin Welch).
