* Congratulations to retrofit for FTF! *
This is just to show how these mountains are formed and to take you on a hike to explore these famous mountains. The Chatsworth and Simi Fault lines run near by also. The Chatsworth Fault is a reverse fault line that is slowly splitting these hills apart. A reverse fault is a fault line that is pushing away from eahother and splits things apart. If you have seen the San Andreas Fault you know that there is a large canyon that has been created by the fault line splitting apart. These hills are slowing moving each year of about a few centimeters. The Chatsworth fault is 12.4 miles long and is capable of producing a 6.0 - 6.8 magnitude earthquake.
1) Look at the coordinates on you G.P.S.
2) Do you think the coordinates of this exact spot will be different hundreds of years from now?
3) Since this is a reverse fault do you think these hills will look toatally different hundreds of years from now?
4) If your G.P.S. shows elevation then do you think the elevation will change over time or will it change?
5) Take a picture with you in it and the hills in the back and include it in your log.
*** Make sure all these questions are included in your log! ***
