Japan quake studies suggest harder jolt to NW possible

"Studies of last year's giant Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan suggest that shaking from a Cascadia megaquake could be stronger than expected along the coasts of Washington, Oregon and British Columbia, researchers reported Sunday at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science."

Annie's take:

The amount of time that has passed since the Tohuku Earthquake and tsunami in Japan has allowed scientists to gather even more data on assumptions; and to apply those assumptions to the Cascadia subduction zone in the Pacific Northwest. This information should be read against what research information ASA had when Andrew wrote his research note this month on Pacific Northwest Earthquake Risk. That note can be found on the ASA website in the "Research" section.
