        The Utah Geological Survey (UGS), University of Utah Seismograph Stations (UUSS), and Utah Division of Emergency Management (UDEM) recently published the Utah Earthquakes (–) and Quaternary Fault Map (UGS Map ). The new map shows earthquakes within and surrounding Utah from to , and faults considered to be sources of large earthquakes.   The earthquake threat in Utah is real. The chance of one or more large earthquakes of magnitude or greater in the Wasatch Front region in the next 50 years is .

        There is a 43% probability that the Wasatch Front region in Utah will experience at least one magnitude or greater earthquake, and a 57 % .   Utah’s potential as a site of future earthquake damage gathered attention with the release of a troubling report about a major fault along the Wasatch Front, with scientists concluding that the.

2 Utah eological Survey Moment Magnitude The use of moment magnitude to depict the size of seismic events on the map is significant.

Moment magnitude, M (sometimes denoted as M W), is a modern seismological measure of the physical properties of the earthquake definition of M follows Hanks and Kanamori (): M = 2/3 logM0 –where M0 is the earthquake’s scalar seismic File Size: KB.

We must prepare for earthquakes because: Utah is a seismically active region; A majority of Utah's population is concentrated in the areas of greatest hazard. The scenarios include information from the Utah Geological Survey (UGS), the Salt Lake City/County Assessor’s Office, and the Structural Engineers Association of Utah.

A detailed assessment of the geologic hazards associated with a M earthquake on the Salt Lake City segment of the Wasatch fault is provided by the UGS located here.

The Utah Division of Emergency Management Earthquake Program promotes seismic safety statewide and prepares Utahns for earthquakes through community outreach programs, publications and presentations.

The Earthquake Program works to implement broad-based yet specific proposals regarding preparedness and mitigation. An earthquake is a sudden shaking of the earth caused by the breaking and shifting of rock beneath the earth's surface.

Earthquake can cause building and bridges to collapse, down telephone and power lines, and result in fires, explosions, and landslides. Salt Lake City (often shortened to Salt Lake and abbreviated as SLC) is the capital and most populous municipality of the U.S.

The Working Group on Utah Earthquake Probabilities (WGUEP) has assessed the probability of large earthquakes in the Wasatch Front region.
