Earthquake scientists hope the data they're about to get will shed more light on the structure of the offshore Cascadia fault zone. That plate boundary will be the source of the Big One whenever it rips.</p><p> Sat, 29 Jun 2013 00:01:41 +0000 Tom Banse 30140 at http://nwpr.org Research Cruise Investigates 'Lock Zone' Of Dangerous Offshore Fault 'Silent Earthquakes' Ripple Under Cascadia http://nwpr.org/post/silent-earthquakes-ripple-under-cascadia <p>Parts of Washington and Oregon are in the midst of silent earthquakes this week. You can't feel this so-called "slow slip" quake and it doesn't cause damage. Still, scientists want to learn more about the recently discovered phenomenon.
