SCEC Community Fault Model – This is a project by the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) to develop a three-dimensional model of the major fault systems in southern California. The model includes more than 820 fault objects in southern California and adjacent offshore basins for which Quaternary activity has been established (or is deemed probable), and that are considered capable of producing moderate to large earthquakes.
