      Earthquakes, Tsunamis and the Cascadia Megathrust Earthquake

      This course examines the science of seismology, including the types of earthquakes and faults, and their distribution and destructive power, all within a plate tectonic setting. We focus on the Cascadia Subduction Zone and the geology of Western Washington. We also examine the geological evidence for the 1700 Cascadia megathrust earthquake, the likely destruction from a future Cascadia quake and the simple steps we can all take to prepare for the next quake. Class held on Thursdays, February 6 and 13. $39 per person for the course. To register and for more information, please go to wwu.edu/ALLPeninsulas.
