No one on the team, though, wishes for a catastrophic quake.

"The physics of frictional slippage are fundamentally chaotic. That's why earthquake prediction is so hard. In order to fully consummate our experiment, we do need a 'big one,'" Hudnut said.

Bevis' team will spend the next year working with the data to produce new maps of the southern stretch of the fault. The work is funded by a $500,000 National Science Foundation grant.
