Abstract

This paper demonstrates that the recovery rates of water level changes due to fault creep can be used to infer the position of the slipping zone relative to the well. This technique is applied to five slip-related water level changes observed in a well 460m from the San Andreas fault near Parkfield, California during January 1989 to July 1990. -from Authors
