Living with Earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest

by

Living with Earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An essential guide for anyone interested in understanding earthquake science or in preparing for the next major tremor.

Book News Annotation:

Ah, the giant firs, the verdant hills, the pristine Pacific coastline, the ground under your feet shaking you to jelly. Yeats (geology emeritus, Oregon State U.) examines the reasons why that ground is shaking, particularly the Cascadia Subduction Zone, which runs from British Columbia to northern California. Thanks to its incessant movement earthquakes are not a matter of if but of when, and research shows the region should prepare for major quakes, and soon. Yeats includes the basics on the subduction zone and related features, such as faults (some have been discovered fairly recently beneath heavily populated areas) and tsunamis. He also covers prevention and countermeasures, including preparing your home and designing large structures to take the quake. He includes a long list of resources and websites.
