USGS offers two views of San Andreas Fault

This week, the public has two opportunities to see the notorious San Andreas Fault -- either virtually, or on the ground. Or both.

In the virtual tour, geologist Phil Stoffer will equip the audience with 1950s-style 3-D glasses to learn about the fault and identify public places to explore it. The show starts at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 21, in the Building 3 conference room at the U.S. Geological Survey at 345 Middlefield Road in Menlo Park.

Then on Saturday, July 23, at 9:30 a.m., Dr. Stoffer will lead a field trip to examine the fault in the dirt, through Sanborn County Park.

For information or to sign up for the field trip, call 329-5136, or e-mail Amelia Barrales at
