    A tsunami (/(t) s uː ˈ n ɑː m i, (t) s ʊ ˈ-/ (t)soo-NAH-mee, (t)suu-; from Japanese: 津波, lit. 'harbour wave', pronounced) is a series of waves in a water body caused by the displacement of a large volume of water, generally in an ocean or a large lake. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other underwater explosions (including detonations, landslides, glacier calvings, meteorite Kanji: 津波. Oregon and Washington Coast Ranges From the Mendocino triple junction, coastal mountain ranges extend on northward from within California through Oregon and Washington. Farther inland in Oregon lies the Willamette Valley and still farther eastward the Cascade Range.

    Based on input from the science community, as well as recent planning documents, the Panel on Earth Surface and Interior: Dynamics and Hazards considered the important science and applications areas that could be significantly advanced over the next decade using mainly space-based measurements. In Asia, behind the leading edge of the fast moving Australian-Indian Plate, we see some interesting features. Nearly always, when plates collide like this, we get volcanos and huge uplift mountains. Several things here: the leading edge of India is not producing volcanos. It is causing only uplifts.

    Delay times range from s to s and average about 1 s. Somewhat surprisingly, the largest delay time is found in the b.y.‐old Western Superior Province of the Canadian Shield. The splitting observations are interpreted in terms of the strain‐induced lattice preferred orientation of mantle minerals, especially olivine. Faulting activity can raise parts of the coast above sea level along coast. Currents can affect thickness of water changing shoreline. • Summarize or sketch how different factors, from the waterside and from the landside, affect the appearance of a shoreline.

The crustal thickness of Siletzia varies from 10 to 32 km, and is thickest in the Oregon Coast Range. Thin crust, sheeted dikes, and transitional chemistry may be consistent with ridge or normal subduction in the north, while OIB chemistry, Columbia River Basalt isotopic signatures, and great crustal thickness indicate accretion of an oceanic Cited by: Author Tysdal, Russell G.

This km-long block is moving slowly clockwise with respect to North America about a Euler pole in eastern Washington, thus increasing convergence rates along its leading edge near Cape Blanco.

This thinly populated region was the location of the largest crustal earthquakes in the short recorded history of the Cascadia region, an event of M on December 6, and a larger earthquake of M on J (located on Figure ).

The bay was downwarped due to crustal deformation, especially slip on the Little Salmon Fault. Because the age of the drowned marsh is three hundred years, like the age of the youngest subsided marshes in Oregon and Washington, the crustal deformation probably occurred at the same time as the most recent subduction-zone earthquake.

The Vancouver Island, Washington, and Oregon coast should go down and the northern California coast should go up, according to this model. Modified from Brian Atwater, (Left) Map of part of southern Alaska, showing parts of the crust that went down in the great earthquake (Mw.

We have or are working currently on subduction zone structure and paleoseismology based on turbidites in Cascadia Sumatra, the Northersn San Andreas Fault and in the Southern California borderlands. We are also engaged in Habitat mapping and research on the. The city of Seattle, Washington State, lies within the Puget Sound Lowland, an elongate structural and topographic basin between the Cascade Range and Olympic Mountains.

The area has been impacted by repeated glaciation in the past m.y. and crustal deformation related to the Cascadia subduction zone. Larger earthquake magnitudes generally produce greater fault slip and hence cause larger coseismic crustal deformation, which in turn generate larger tsunamis.

The energy radiated by an earthquake can be approximately related to the seismic moment M 0 (in units of N m), derived from an equivalent set of double‐couple forces acting on the Cited by:   Abrupt changes in crustal structure beneath the Coast Ranges of northern California - developing new techniques in receiver function analysis Gavin P.

The mountain range's name derives from its proximity to the sea coast, and it is often referred to as the Coast ies: Canada and United States.
