1954. About the time the town applied for the post office, the name was changed to Parkfield, reportedly because of its setting among stately oak trees.
A geologist’s goldmine
For geologists Parkfield is a goldmine as the most studied earthquake zone in the world. The San Andreas Fault Observa- tory at Depth (SOFAD) drilled holes more than two miles into the earth across the fault. Their target was a spot on the fault that appears to generate sequences
of repeating microearthquakes. They completed the drill in 2005 installing a series of sensors to record earthquakes in the area.
Earthquakes of 6 or greater on the Richter scale have occurred about 22 years apart, the last one in 2004. The town sits directly on the San Andreas Fault. One of the most active faults in California the San Andreas is approximately 800 miles long and up to 10
miles deep, dividing the North American Tectonic Plate from the Pacific Plate. The Pacific Plate’s relentless movement northward causes the earthquakes.
