Caption: San Andreas fault. True-colour satellite image of part of the San Andreas fault, California, USA. North is at top. Vegetation is green and arid areas are brown. Two fault zones are seen as lines formed by the contrast between such brown and green areas. The San Andreas fault runs across the centre of the image, while the Garlock fault meets it at centre left, forming a V-shape. The city of Los Angeles is the grey-blue area (bottom right) on the Pacific coast. Clouds (white) are at bottom left. The San Andreas fault extends most of the length of California, causing major earthquakes in the region. Photographed on 15 June 1996.
