California lives under the threat of a tectonic time bomb, thanks to the San Andreas fault. While earthquake kits are commonplace in homes across the state in preparation for ‘the big one’, little attention is given to the history of the geological feature.
In his new book, Earthquake Storms, John Dvorak begins to demystify the inner workings of the San Andreas fault through the stories of scientists who've studied the vast crack in the earth for over a century. The book also explores the evolving nature of the fault and the insight it provides into America's seismic future.
