Description:

While earthquakes in the state of California may garner most of the attention of the major media, the Pacific Northwest continues to be a region of intense seismic activity. Based at the University of Washington (within the Department of Earth and Space Sciences), and funded by the USGS and several other organizations, the Pacific Northwest Seismograph Network provides a host of detailed materials about ongoing and historic activity and hazards. From the homepage, visitors may traverse on over to sections that detail the latest seismic activity in the region, or peruse a list of recent notable quakes, complete with detailed information on their duration, magnitude, and respective epicenters. Interesting historical seismic information may be gleaned through a perusal of the Volcanoes area of the site that allows visitors to look at data for the major volcanoes in the area, including Mount Adams, Mount Baker, Mount Hood, and Mount St. Helens.
