Ridge-Top Spreading in California, Contributions Toward Understanding a Significant Seismic Hazard: by Earl W. Hart, 2003. Contains a digital collection of seven contributions on ridge-top cracking and spreading and the  landforms associated with this process in California. The ridge-top landforms addressed in this volume occur almost exclusively in seismically active regions of California and some of the landforms have been fracturing caused by seismic shaking. This leads to the conclusion that seismic shaking may play a role in creating ridge-top spreading and associated landforms in California.
