Horst Rademacher

A Guide to a Brief Walking Tour

In this brief book, we highlight some of the major features of the Hayward Fault on the UC Berkeley campus. We will visit sites where the continuous aseismic creep along the fault is tearing at buildings, structures and roads, we will see examples of how the University mitigates some of the risk posed by the seismic hazard and we will look at methods to monitor the seismic activity of the fault. This booklet is designed as a guide for a walking tour to the points of interest as they are shown on the maps in figures 2 and 5.5 herein.
