The Cascadia Subduction Zone off the coast of the Pacific Northwest has all the ingredients for making powerful earthquakes -- and according to the geological record, the region is due for its next 'big one.' A new study has found that the occurrence of these big, destructive quakes and associated devastating tsunamis may be linked to compact sediments along large portions of the subduction zone.

30+ years ago we didn't know that M9 earthquakes occur in #Cascadia You can't prepare for something that you don't know about. Now we know that they occur, how often, the date of the last one, and where energy is being stored for the next one.
