Goldman, M.R., Catchings, R.D., Strayer, L.M., Chan, J.H., Criley, C.C., Sickler, R.R., and McEvilly, A.T., 2020, Data Release for the 2016 East Bay Seismic Imaging Investigation of the Hayward Fault Zone: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


In October 2016, we acquired an approximately 15-km-long seismic profile along a linear transect across the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay area. Our goal was to image previously unknown strands of the Hayward Fault zone and to better delineate the structure and geometry of the main trace of the Hayward Fault. Our profile started near the southern border of San Leandro, California at the San Francisco Bay shoreline, trended ENE through the northern edge of Castro Valley, California, and ended approximately 5 km WSW of San Ramon, California. The data were analyzed using refraction tomography modeling, reflection processing, and guided-wave analysis. The analyzed data are presented in separate reports by Strayer and others (submitted [...]
