Southern California hosts a number of active faults. Over the last 20 years, our region has become the most seismically active area in the Western states, with magnitude seven or greater events occurring along the (in)famous San Andreas fault. Join Scripps geoscientist Yuri Fialko as he discusses what we know about earthquakes and the slow tectonic deformation that causes them.
