California’s Earthquake ‘Pause’

California is experiencing a century-long lull in large, ground-rupturing earthquakes, temblors that actually offset the earth at the surface. The 7.9-magnitude Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 was a ground-rupturing quake. Now, new research finds that this 100-year earthquake gap is very unlikely to be a statistical fluke. Instead, something geological is probably causing the peaceful period. The average number of ground-rupturing earthquakes per century is about three or four. This century has had zero, so a good bet is that the next century will be busier.
