Directions: From the town of Mecca, proceed northeast about 5 miles on Highway 195 to a point where the road crosses the San Andreas fault.
Comments: This array was established after the 28 June 1992 Landers earthquake to monitor the effect of that earthquake on the San Andreas fault. It ties an array that straddles Hwy 195 and the San Andreas fault to bench marks in a UCSB level line that lies 1 km to the northwest.
