So, what actually are geologists and developers looking for when they go "trenching" in search of earthquake faults? Apparently, it's layers in the ground that are "basically horizontal," a geologist tells KPCC. Tears or deformities in the layers indicate there was an earthquake in the last 11,000 years, which is a no-no for development. [KPCC]
