Hawaii Play Fairway Analysis: USGS Quaternary Fault and Fold Database


This database contains information on faults and associated folds in the United States that are believed to be sources of M>6 earthquakes during the Quaternary (the past 1,600,000 years). Maps of these geologic structures are linked to detailed descriptions and references. Used to supplement faults mapped on the USGS 2007 Geologic Map of the State of Hawaii. Reference: U.S. Geological Survey, 2006, Quaternary fault and fold database for the United States, accessed 2015, from USGS web site: http//earthquakes.usgs.gov/regional/qfaults/.
