Fault Map of Nevada

Vertical fault slip rates for 270 normal-slip faults in Nevada, estimated from geomorphic features. From: dePolo. C. M. (1998). A reconnaissance technique for estimating the slip rates of normal-slip faults in the Great Basin, and application to faults in Nevada, U.S.A., Ph.D. Thesis, University of Nevada, Reno (John Anderson, Dissertation Advisor). Copyright 1998 by C. M. dePolo.

The fault traces plotted in black are strike-slip faults with little vertical slip but with potential for horizontal slip at high rates.
