Sonoma County Has Its Faults: A Rock ‘N’ Roll Story


V1 Sonoma County Has Its Faults-A Rock 'n' Roll Story

Join us for Dr. Jane Nielson’s explanation of the origin of our geologic hazards, why we always have to account for their effects, and how best to protect yourself and your family.

Knowledge is power and being informed of the realities of living in Sonoma County is essential, as our communities rapidly grow and expand.

  • Do you know how many faults cross Sonoma County? There are 2 dangerous active faults, and many other fault breaks that could be hazardous…and they’re still finding more
  • Where in the County do you expect the greatest shaking to occur?
  • Do City and County Planners aim to reduce hazards for new developments? Not necessarily…

Dr. Jane Nielson, who holds B.A., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in geochemistry and petrology, and has worked 18 years as a field and research geologist for US Geological Survey, explains Sonoma County’s unique geological history and how it impacts us moving forward.
