We have the technology to I.D. them near their source, but getting the word out may still be the hardest part
Ask geologists where the next big tsunami might strike, and the answer is a refrain: North America´s Pacific Northwest coastline. That´s the location of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, a 680-mile-long fault that hugs the shore from Northern California to Vancouver Island. Akin to the tectonic deadlock that eventually snapped and spawned the Indian Ocean tsunami last December, Cascadia is a geological battleground where the Juan de Fuca and North American plates are duking it out.
