Deep Time, Global Change and YOU: Magnitude 9 - How We Learned that the Largest Earthquakes on Earth Happen in BC presented by John Clague, Simon Fraser University

Evidence discovered by Canadian and U.S. scientists over the past 30 years has shown that the largest earthquakes on Earth occur at our doorstep, off the BC coast.  In this presentation, Dr. Clague describes how scientists found and interpreted the geological and biological evidence of these earthquakes. He also reviews the likely effects and impact of the next “Big One” on Vancouver, Victoria, and cities in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.
