  1. The Wasatch Fault is an earthquake fault located primarily on the western edge of the Wasatch Mountains in the U.S. state of siorolarlainabanfuwaregespoicar.xyzinfo fault is miles long, stretching from southern Idaho, through northern Utah, before terminating in central Utah near the town of Fayette. [1] It is made up of several segments, on average 25 miles long, each of which can independently produce earthquakes as.
  2. The Wasatch Fault - An Active Seismic Zone. The Wasatch Front is in an active seismic zone stretching from Nephi on the south to Brigham City on the north along the foot of the Wasatch Mountain Range. Nearly all of the state’s population resides along this narrow band that comprises about 2 percent of the area of the state.
  3. The Wasatch fault is a major active fault that extends from near Gunnison on the south, northward into southern Idaho traversing through the most densely populated areas of Utah as shown on Figure 1. The Wasatch fault will generate large earthquakes in the future; many may be .

  6. The Wasatch fault, comprising 10 segments that rupture independently, is the longest active normal fault in the United States. Its five central segments extend through the Wasatch Front urban corridor between Brigham City and Nephi. During the past 10, years at least 25 surface-faulting earthquakes have taken place on the Wasatch fault.
  7. The majority of Utah’s population lives along the Wasatch fault, an active intraplate normal fault that extends for approximately miles along the western front of the Wasatch Range. Investigations of earthquake recurrence on the Wasatch fault have revealed that segments of the fault have been the source of repeated large earthquakes, probably of magnitude /4 to /2.

  9. Wasatch Fault According to a new study, the likelihood of an earthquake that is or greater affecting the Wasatch Front is now reported to be about 57%. This is due in part because of the other faults round within the region - not just the Wasatch fault.
