Summary:
The history of very large subduction zone earthquakes on the western North American margin has been established through analysis of sedimentary deposits of the continental slope that record the events in turbidite sequences. Details and the geographic limits of areas affected by shaking by large earthquakes are not well constrained in the northern portion of the subduction zone including the northern Juan de Fuca  Read more...

Abstract:

The history of very large subduction zone earthquakes on the western North American margin has been established through analysis of sedimentary deposits of the continental slope that record the events in turbidite sequences. Details and the geographic limits of areas affected by shaking by large earthquakes are not well constrained in the northern portion of the subduction zone including the northern Juan de Fuca Plate and the Explorer Plate. New results presented here are the first attempt to constrain large earthquake shaking on the boundary between these plates and determine if the Explorer Plate experiences strong shaking during very large quakes. These initial results suggest that the Explorer Plate does not experience strong shaking during subduction events.
