Field work for this paleoseismic investigation was performed in 1997 at three sites (Winter Canyon, Roundy Farm, and Deep Canyon) on the Clarkston, Junction Hills, and Wellsville faults. These faults, along with several lesser associated faults nearby, comprise the West Cache fault zone on the west side of Cache Valley. No previous paleoseismic studies had been conducted on these faults. The information reported here on the size, timing, and recurrence of surface-faulting earthquakes on the West Cache fault zone is critical to public officials, planners, and others making decisions regarding earthquake-hazard mitigation in Cache Valley and the northern Wasatch front. 23 pages + 1 plateAnderson, J.G., Wesnousky, S.G., and Stirling, M.W., 1996, Earthquake size as a function of fault slip rate: Bulletin of the ...
