For Google: Great Lone Pine earthquake


USGS estimates the earthquake at "only" 7.6 [1] Shall I change the article? -- hike395 04:45, 16 Sep 2003 (UTC)

It just says "7.6M". Does the "M" stand for Richter magnitude or another measure? --mav
Probably Richter, but it is all gross estimates, anyway [2]. We can leave the article as is, if you like. -- hike395
A range will even be better. I'll fix. --mav

Lone Pine Fault?[edit]

The USGS site says nothing about the Lone Pine Fault. It states that the epicenter was on the Owens Valley Fault. What is the reference for the assertion that the Lone Pine Fault was involved at all? Tmangray 22:12, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
