Abstract

New stratigraphic evidence and radiocarbon ages, presented in this paper, show that the zone of subsidence associated with earthquakes in the Cascadia subduction zone may extend north to central Vancouver Island. The evidence is in accord with geodetic data and geophysical modelling which indicate that part of the plate boundary off Vancouver Island is locked and capable of producing great earthquakes
