Ponti, D.J., Rosa, C.M., and Blair, J.L., 2019, Digital datasets documenting fault rupture and ground deformation features produced by the Mw 6.0 South Napa Earthquake of August 24, 2014: U.S. Geological Survey data release, https://doi.org/10.5066/F7P26W84.

Summary

This product is the result of a comprehensive compilation of site-specific field descriptions and displacement measurements where tectonic faulting and ground failure produced visible deformation that fractured and disturbed the ground surface. The resultant data is distributed as a tab-delimited text file. All post-earthquake ground rupture observations and slip/displacement measurements are those in the public domain, including data that have been published in summary reports elsewhere.
