Field Trip 1: The Hayward Fault

We will meet at our regular class location (60 Evans) and at our regular class time. The trip will last about 2 hours and will involve a lot of walking, sometimes off pavement. So please wear shoes that can get dirty. Also, please bring a notebook.

Field Trip Report

After participating in the field trip prepare a 2-3 page report (1000 words max)based on the trip. The report could take one of the three following forms:

  • Write a description of 4 of the stops describing what you saw and how it relates to earthquake hazard.
  • Write a short paper on a topic that relates to the field trip. For example: What would be the effects of an earthquake on the Hayward Fault on the Cal campus, Berkeley, or one of the buildings we saw on the trip. What would happen if an earthquake occurred during a football game?
  • Write a short story based on the trip.
If you have a suggestion for an alternative field trip report contact me for approval.
