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 marked by two mountain ranges forming a V-shape and meeting at far left. The San Andreas fault runs across the bottom of the image, while the Garlock fault runs across the upper left corner. Rectangular-shaped fields (some green) are seen in the area between the mountains. The dry bed of Rosamond Lake (blue) is seen at far right. The San Andreas fault extends almost the full length of California, and causes major earthquakes in the region.
