The City of San Diego is traversed by the Holocene?active Rose Canyon Fault Zone (RCFZ). The RCFZ is a right lateral strike?slip fault with a slip rate of 1-2 mm/yr and the potential to produce a M6.9 earthquake. This project focuses on strands of the RCFZ that traverse through downtown San Diego. The RCFZ seismic hazard has a direct impact on city development via the Alquist?Priolo Earthquake Fault Zoning Act, which regulates structures for human occupancy based on seismic assessments. As a result, geotechnical firms have been conducting many private, small?scale studies of local fault architecture since the 1980s and have amassed an impressive amount of data. However, each report is site specific with minimal integration between neighboring sites. There exists no resource where all the data can be studied simultaneously. This project synthesizes existing geotechnical data into an interactive geodatabase to elucidate RCFZ geometry and the evolution of the fault zone through downtown San Diego. The geodatabase contains geologic and geotechnical data that have been digitized from 268 reports. Using the data, fault segments were characterized as active, potentially active, or less potentially active. The results show an active zone of discontinuous fault segments trending N-S in eastern downtown. Both active and less potentially active faults are found mostly to the east, while potentially active faults are found throughout downtown. Furthermore, the research area is located at the edge of the San Diego Bay pull-apart basin, where the RCFZ steps offshore to the Descanso fault. Few field studies have examined the character of bounding faults as they approach releasing step-overs, which could have control on earthquake rupture dynamics. To identify patterns between fault strike and fault activity on the RCFZ, fault strike of each segment was determined and plotted on rose diagrams. These results showed active faults and less potentially active faults to have similar strike orientations, with mean directions of N12°W and N17°W, respectively, while potentially active faults plotted with a mean direction of N17°E. These results may indicate a change in stress orientation through time, or a change related to step-over evolution.
