San Andreas fault at Wallace Creek. Because earthquake fault slip rates feed into Seismic Hazard, I will calculate the fault slip rate (i.e. source characterization). The following are the steps I would take: Rate = Distance / Time. The stream is 10,000 years old, so the time span is 10,000 years. The stream channel has been offset. I will measure the distance in Map Units. I will determine the scale of the map (conversion factor). I will convert the Map Units to Real World Distance with the conversion factor. I will divide the Real World Distance by the time to get the fault slip rate. I will convert the slip rate units to mm/yr so it can be used by the design engineer, she will appreciate this. http://arrowsmith410-598.asu.edu/Lectures/Lecture4/GLG410_598--Excel_Warmup3.html
