San Francisco Bay, California ( Hayward Fault,San Andreas Fault)

Photo of the San Francisco Bay, California taken from space. Here two northwestoutheast-trending faults are discernible, the Hayward Fault, bordering the urban area east of San Francisco Bay, and the San Andreas Fault, crossing the mid-San Francisco Peninsula before dipping beneath the Pacific Ocean and surfacing again northwest of Golden Gate Bridge.
