  • The Fraser river delta is the largest delta in western Canada. It is an important coastal ecosystem and an area of explosive urban and industrial growth lying within the most seismically active zone in Canada. The main geological hazards are failures of the delta; slope and earthquake-induced liquefaction. Deposition at the river mouth contributes to slope failures, including one of more than 1×10 6 m 3 with a headscrap within 100 m of a staffed lighthouse. Previous discharge of treated sewage… CONTINUE READING
