Earthquake Velocity Magnitude at Different Intervals

February 13, 2013
Snapshots of velocity magnitude at different intervals. Along the fault, the Coachella Valley experiences particularly strong shaking, and large amplitude waves are generated in the Los Angeles and Ventura basins. Strong, near-fault ground motion is noticed further north beyond Parkfield.
