4). By calculating the expected ground-shaking from an earthquake and using additional data from the geologic map, we can also assess the susceptibility to earthquake-induced landslides in the area. The result1958 ing susceptibility maps (Fig. 5) show which areas are most susceptible. The analysis also revealed that intermediate slopes are more likely to have landslide deposits than the steepest areas. The steepest slopes may truly be less susceptible, or landslides may have occurred at steep slopes but the deposits are resting on steep slopes down the hillside.
The availability of potable groundwater is highly variable and controlled entirely by the complicated geology of the region. The geologic map (Fig. 3) enables us to better understand these controls and the complexity of this tectonically dynamic region. 7-million- to 700,000-year-old Santa Fe Group basin fill.
