Caption

Aerial photograph looking south-west across the San Andreas fault as it crosses the Carrizo Plain approximately 450km (300 miles) south of San Francisco & 160km (100 miles) north of Los Angeles. One of the world's great seismic faults, the San Andreas extends almost the full length of California & is responsible for major earthquakes. This image shows the right-lateral displacement of the pair of stream channels in the centre of the photo. The left-hand stream is offset by about 23 meters. The fault line runs from left to right, just above the centre of the image; stream flow is away from the viewer. Location: Carrizo Plain area, Sec. T31S, R20E.
