Active Traces of the Hayward Fault
Virtual Tour using Google Earth
To start the tour, open the map and tour folder in GoogleEarth. Select the “Hayward Fault Virtual Helicopter Tour” file, click the play button (triangle) located below the “Places” panel. Bundled with the map and tour are: 1) photographs showing evidence of creep and other aspects of faulting, 2) locations of creep, 3) locations of exploratory trenches crossing the fault, 4) moving landslides (from InSAR, only available for northern Berkeley Hills), and the kilometer grid used in the published map.
