Tectonic Geohazard Sources and Integrated Probabilistic Modeling


Cascadia coastal communities face a Destructive Combination of Hazards:

  • Earthquake shaking
  • Tsunamis
  • Landslides

Recent Advances:

  • High-resolution imaging
  • High-precision geologic dating
  • 3D earthquake and tsunami simulations
  • Simulation of impacts of shaking and tsunami on infrastructure 

Team 1 Goals:

  • Advance understanding of Cascadia earthquakes, tsunamis and landslides and their recurrence rates
  • Enable comprehensive coastal multi-hazard planning and mitigation through advanced probabilistic simulations
