California and Panama are well known for their active tectonics, situated in densely populated areas. To evaluate this natural hazard and to better understand the recurrence interval of some of these active fault systems, fault related sediments can be dated by luminescence dating techniques to reconstruct past fault activities. First results from Panama and California show that faulting was much more frequent and recent than formerly known.
