San Andreas fault, a continental transform fault that runs a length of roughly 810 miles (1,300 km) through California in the United States. The fault's motion is right-lateral strike-slip (horizontal motion). It forms the tectonic boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate.

San Andreas fault (patahan), Earth's biggest transform plate boundary Transform occur where plates slide or, perhaps grind past each other along transform faults.

A new study has found it isn't just the San Andreas fault we should be worried about. Instead, a very real threat of earthquakes and tsunamis lurks offshore Southern California. Researchers say that several long faults could cause magnitude 8.0 quakes and tsunamis within 90 miles (145km) of the coast
