This Utah Geological Survey Special Study, Paleoseismic Investigation of the Northern Weber Segment of the Wasatch Fault Zone at the Rice Creek Trench Site, North Ogden, Utah, is the eighteenth report in the Paleoseismology of Utah series. This series makes the results of paleoseismic investigations in Utah available to geoscientists, engineers, planners, public officials, and the general public. These studies provide critical information regarding paleoearthquake parameters such as earthquake timing, recurrence, displacement, slip rate, fault geometry, and segmentation, which can be used to characterize potential seismic sources and evaluate the long-term seismic hazard of Utah’s Quaternary faults.

This report presents the results of a study of the Hurricane fault in Utah, and is part of a more extensive National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program-funded cooperative study by the Utah Geological Survey (UGS) and Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS) of the Hurricane fault in Utah and Arizona. The Hurricane fault is one of the longest and most active of several large, late Cenozoic, west-dipping normal faults within the structural and seismic transition between the Colorado Plateau and Basin and Range physiographic provinces. Assessing the seismic hazard of the Hurricane fault is important because southwestern Utah is experiencing a now decades-long construction and population boom. Results of the AZGS study of the Hurricane fault in Arizona are reported elsewhere.
