United States Geological Survey Web Pages
  Earthquake Hazards Page
The main page for the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program. See recent quakes, access shake maps, read about ongoing research, and find learning and education materials.
  The Great 1906 Earthquake
An overview of the 1906 earthquake and the science behind studying it.
  1906 Ground Motion Simulations
Simulations from new computer models recreating ground motion from the 1906 earthquake. These quicktime movies show how ground moved on the two sides of the San Andreas fault and how seismic waves radiated away from the fault to produce the shaking.
  Virtual Tour of the 1906 Quake in Google Earth
A variety of .kmz files for visualizing the 1906 earthquake are available. These files are used in the Google Earth program, which you can download for free from the Google Earth website.
  Earth Science Photographic Archive
Provides free access to non-copyrighted photographs from the USGS archive. The collection consists of over 29,500 photos ranging in age from 1868 through 1992, with emphasis on geology, earthquake damage, National Monuments, pioneer photographers (like W.H. Jackson, J.K. Hillers, T.H. O'Sullivan, and others), 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption, and Mines, Mills, and Quarries. Included is a wide variety of 1906 earthquake damage photographs taken by G.K. Gilbert, H. Degenkolb, R.B. Marshall and W.C. Mendenhall, among others.
1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire Visualizations
This collection of links to images, films, panoramas, and animations of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and its aftermath is offered through On the Cutting Edge, part of the SERC website helping geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
San Diego Supercomputer Center's SCEC Visualizations
SDSC has produced a variety of visualizations for the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC). Includes simulations of the impact different magnitude earthquakes would have on the Los Angeles area.
Stanford Magazine: 'All, All is Destruction'
Stanford magazine has a featured article in the March/April 2006 edition that focuses on one student's recollections of the quake.
