Similarities in number, depth, sequence stratigraphy, and radiocarbon ages characterize buried peats of seven estuaries along 175 Ian of the northern Oregon coast. We use these peats to infer the extent of earthquake-induced subsidence, earthquake magnitudes, and average recurrence intervals for late Holocene earthquakes at the Cascadia Subduction Zone… CONTINUE READING
