Step 1, processes described by the article◻What was the estimated cost of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake according to this article? Enter your value as a number without units - for example, $1 million should be entered as 1,000,000. Roughly how long in minutes will shaking likely be felt for an earthquake with magnitude of approximately 8.7? Enter as a number representing minutes, with one decimal point and NO units – for example, 9.8. What is the maximum magnitude predicted for the Cascadia Subduction Zone, or CSZ (enter as a number, for example, 5.6). According to the article, a full release will result in a predicted maximum height of the tsunami wave of more than ______30meters. (enter as a number, for example, 16). The article quotes two values for a range of values for the amount that the western edge of North America bulges upwards each year. What is the maximumof that range in units of meters? (you need to convert from millimeters to meters; enter as a number, for example, 8.55.) ◻How many years have passed between now and the last known major CSZ earthquake? Given two values from the article, what is the maximumamount we can expect the western edge of North America to sink if a CSZ earthquake occurs now? (Answer in units of meters not millimeters;enter as a number, for example, 2.45) Which type of seismic waves were characterized as “not very harmful, but potentially very useful”? Which type of seismic waves were mentioned as causing the majority of hazardous shaking? osurface waves (of various types including Love waves, Raleigh waves, etc.) ocompressional waves oshear waves ◻The predicted impacts on which part of the Pacific Northwest are not included in the FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) reports, and not really mentioned in this article? If there was a large tsunami and Pachena Bay was in need of help, to which community would it be best to truck supplies, so that helicopter flights into Pachena Bay are as short as possible? (Hint, steps for using google maps “measure distance” facility are outlined at ). oPort Alberni oPort Renfrew oComox oVictoria oNanaimo oVancouver oTofino -According to this article, what information led to understanding the impact on Pachena Bay due to the last great CSZ earthquake?
oAnalysis of sea floor core samples. oDendrochronology of trees in the “ghost forest”. oLong-term records of tsunami recorded in Japan.
