Caption: False-colour Landsat image of central California, USA, showing the area around the village of Parkfield (arrowed). Parkfield lies directly on the San Andreas fault and is the site of the Parkfield earthquake prediction experiment. Dozens of researchers have made the tiny village, with a population of 34, the most heavily instrumented earthquake region in the world. A successful prediction at Parkfield will help researchers to improve their ability to predict earthquakes elsewhere.
