Improved tsunami warning system for mega-earthquake-prone Cascadia region

14 Dec 2016, Scripps Inst of Oceanography

Residents of the Cascadia region in British Columbia and the U.S. Pacific Northwest are the focus of an effort to improve NOAA’s tsunami warning system, based on a novel combination of GPS and seismic instruments. The new technology called seismogeodesy can help the highly populated region, which hasn’t experienced a trembler since 1700, better prepare for the “big one.”
