  • Japan’s March 11 earthquake in 2011 has the same magnitude.Richard A. Lovett (May 31, 2010), “Risk of giant quake off American west coast goes up”, NatureGoldfinger, C. et al. Turbidite Event History: Methods and Implications for Holocene Paleoseismicity of the CascadiaSubduction Zone. USGS Prof. Pap. 1661-F (USGS, Reston, Virginia, in the press).
  • We will work closely with Pat to identify local leaders and business owners to engage in this two-year process. We economists need the involvement of local business owners to help us calibrate and refine the economic Input-Output model. In turn, local folks will get an ongoing education about the current structure and flows of the Clatsop County economy. This information is useful in a variety of economic development applications outside of this project. Additionally, property owners in the inundation zone will learn about the relative vulnerability to tsunamis of their existing buildings and structures. The overall goal of the engagement piece is get people thinking now, before the event, about the kinds of things we can do to lessen the negative impact of a tsunami on the local economy, and thereby increase the overall resilience of coastal communities
