Damaging earthquakes in Nevada: 1840s to 2008
Craig M. dePolo
Special Publication 37
Poster: 35 x 45 inches, color; text: 4 pages, b/w
Prepared by the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology with assistance from the Nevada Seismological Laboratory, the Seismological Society of America, the U.S. Geological Survey, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The damaging earthquakes briefly described on this map occurred during the period from the mid-1800s to 2008. They are the largest historical examples, but do not include all significant and damaging earthquake events in the state. These events and their descriptions remind us that Nevada is earthquake country and that earthquakes will produce strong shaking within our communities in the future.
