Geologic history of North America gets overturned
LiveScience
It's time to redraw the map of the world during the reign of the dinosaurs, two scientists say. Picture the U.S. West Coast as a tortured tectonic boundary, similar to Australia and Southeast Asia today. Erase the giant subduction zone researchers have long nestled against western North America.

Salt Lake town hall to explore seismic risks and readiness
The Salt Lake Tribune
Utah's Salt Lake segment of the Wasatch fault zone has produced eight large earthquakes in the last 12,000 years. As a whole, this network of faults generates a biggie every 900 to 1,300 years. According to the geological record, the last temblor that exceeded magnitude 6.5, or the kind that can turn unreinforced masonry homes into piles of rubble, ripped Salt Lake 1,400 years ago.

The unusually large Bingham Canyon Mine landslide: An impressive example of prediction using monitoring
American Geophysical Union
On April 10, an extremely large landslide occurred in the Bingham Canyon copper mine in Utah. According to various news reports, the deforming slope was identified some months ago and monitored intensively. An increasing rate of strain in the hours before failure indicated that a collapse was imminent, and the mining company released a warning about the landslide in advance.

Work continues on US 89 landslide site
Arizona Department of Transportation
March 20 marked one month since a landslide ripped through a segment of U.S. Highway 89 and buckled more than 150 feet of the pavement. That geological event not only triggered an immediate closure of a 23-mile stretch of the highway but also brought out a whole team of engineers and geotechnical experts to the scene.

Exposing the Wasatch Fault: A source of large earthquakes along the Wasatch Front
Utah Geological Survey
VideoBriefThe Wasatch fault is Utah's longest and most active fault, extending along the Wasatch Front from southern Idaho to central Utah. Although no large earthquakes have ruptured the fault historically, abundant geologic evidence indicates that the fault is capable of generating earthquakes as large as magnitude 6.5–7.5. This video takes you along the trace of the Wasatch fault, showing its proximity to cities and towns in the Wasatch Front region, and also highlighting the history of past large earthquakes on the central, most active segments of the fault.
