DescriptionArizona has suffered relatively modest amounts of damage and destruction resulting from earthquake shaking during its historical period. There is cause to be concerned about earthquake hazards in Arizona, however. Many earthquakes ranging in magnitude up to about 6 have occurred within Arizona, and portions of the State have experienced strong shaking resulting from earthquakes that occurred in California and Mexico. Geologic investigations indicate that at least 20 faults in Arizona have been active in the past 100,000 years, and thus may be considered potential sources for large earthquakes. This bibliography represents an attempt to develop a reasonably comprehensive list of references pertaining to all aspects of earthquake hazards in Arizona. We hope that this bibliography will be useful for planners, engineers, scientists, emergency-management officials, and government agencies concerned about earthquake hazards in Arizona. In addition to the bibliography, we provide a short summary of seismic hazard in Arizona after this introduction.
