Cascadia Initiative and SRL Focus Section Featured in Seattle Times

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

A recent Seattle Times article highlights research made possible by the Cascadia Initiative community seismic experiment. The September/October 2015 issue of Seismological Research Letters will contain a focus section on the Cascadia Initiative that includes eight articles presenting results using the first three years of data from the onshore/offshore deployment along the Cascadia subduction zone. This community seismic experiment utilized 60 ocean bottom instruments designed and built by Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and will be complete this fall with the recovery of the Year 4 instruments.  Data is archived and available publicly at the IRIC DMC under network code 7D.  

The Seattle Times article can be found here, and a related article by AAAS EurekAlert! can be found here.
