ASU research on cover of Science

The February 26 cover of Science is provided by Olaf Zielke and Ramon Arrowsmith in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at ASU.  It accompanies their co-authored paper on rupture history of the San Andreas fault.

Cover caption from Science: High-resolution (0.25 meters per pixel) hillshade map showing the topography of the San Andreas Fault in the Carrizo Plain of California. Two stream channels that bend at the fault have been displaced about 10 meters (lower right) by two earthquakes and 16 meters (upper left) by as many as five earthquakes, including the most recent earthquake in 1857. Blue indicates lower elevations.  Image: O. Zielke, J. R. Arrowsmith/Arizona State University; L. Grant Ludwig, S. O. Akiz, G. R. Noriega/University of California, Irvine; topography data gathered by the B4 Project and processed by OpenTopography.
