Dept. of Water Resources. Publication date TopicsPages: Several thousand aftershocks of the August 1, Oroville, California, earthquake (M L = ) were recorded by an 8-station field-seismic network. Focal coordinates of of these events were fitted by least-squares to a plane striking N07°W and dipping 59°W; the strike (but not the dip) of this plane is in good agreement with that (N09°W) obtained from a fault-plane solution for a large foreshock 8 sec.

On 1 Augustan M L earthquake occurred ∼11 km south-southwest of the Oroville Dam on a northwest-trending portion of the Foothills fault system (e.g., Toppozada and Morrison, ). The characteristics of the Oroville, California earthquake sequence of are presented. Historically, the Oroville area is one of low seismicity; the largest earthquake in the region occurred with a magnitude (M L) in some 50 km north of first foreshock of the sequence occurred on J On August 1,a magnitude (m b) earthquake occurred approximately 8 km SSE of the town of Oroville, California.

This earthquake and its associated foreshock-aftershock sequence are of particular interest because of their possible relation to the impounding of the billion m 3 Lake Oroville. Hypocenter locations for aftershocks that occurred during August define a fault plane striking.

Abstract. On August 1,at GMT a magnitude (ML) earthquake occurred 15 km south of Oroville, California, in the western foothills of the Sierra Nevada.

It was preceded by 61 foreshocks that began on June 7,and was followed by thousands of aftershocks. Several studies have reported locations or analyses of various subsets of the Oroville sequence, including Morrison and others.

That event, more than any of the infrequent earth­ quakes that previously occurred in the area, awakened the geologic and engineering communities to the poten­ tial of active faulting in the valley and in the adjacent.

OROVILLE — Thirty-five years ago, on August 1, the citizens of Oroville say there was a lot of shaking going on. The earthquake of rocked. INTRODUCTION On 1 Augustan earthquake of magnitude (M) occurred 12 km south of Lake Oroville (Figure 1). The earthquake was accompanied by surface faulting which extended for several kilometers (Akers and McQuilkin, ).

The earthquake sequence (M > 3) consisted of five foreshocks, a main shock, and numerous aftershocks. Performance of the Oroville Dam and Related Facilities During the August 1,Earthquake: California Dept of Water Resources: Books - at: Paperback.

The study of reservoir-induced seismicity offers a controlled setting to understand the physics of the earthquake process. Data from detailed investigations at reservoirs in South Carolina suggested that the mechanism of transmission of stress to hypocentral locations is.

Sherburne, Carl J. Hauge (Editor) Published by California Division of Mines and Geology., Sacramento, CA. The seismic sensors did not record any uptick in seismic activity around Lake Oroville.

That changed suddenly on Jwhen a magnitude quake occurred south of the lake. During the month of July, it was followed by almost 20 minor shocks in the same region, until a magnitude quake hit on August 1. The study of reservoir-induced seismicity offers a controlled setting to understand the physics of the earthquake process.

Data from detailed investigations at reservoirs in South Carolina suggested that the mechanism of transmission of stress to hypocentral locations is by a process of diffusion of pore pressure (Pp).

These results were compared with available worldwide data. Oroville Dam, at feet high, was completed in and is the tallest dam in the United States.

It stores million acre-feet of water, or enough to serve 7 million average households for a year. This work is part of an investigation to determine whether a statistical relationship exists between varying radon concentration in well waters and the occurrence of nearby earthquakes.

If such a dependence is verified, then certain patterns of changing radon activity may be useful for predicting.

The magnitude Oroville earthquake occurred on this system in August on the Cleveland Hill Fault near Lake Oroville Reservoir, approximately miles to the southeast of the Specific Plan area, producing a rupture length of miles. Two other serious highest level FERC Category 1 rated PFM's originate from the very large diagonal shear cracking [14][15][16][17] (See Fig 2 - Failure Mode 1 & 2).

This shear cracking is the result of another "design flaw" in that the original designers did not consider in the settling forces of the end bridge abutments into the substructure weathered rock at the abutment footing [10].
