A new modeling method has helped Caltech researchers better understand why the Parkfield segment of the San Andreas fault has been behaving oddly in recent years.Thanks to a new method of modeling earthquakes, scientists may now understand why the Parkfield segment of the San Andreas fault — a carefully studied region known for producing moderate temblors every 20 years or so — has been behaving unexpectedly since around the time Ronald Reagan was in the White House.
