Cascadia Field Trips

Field trips can provide excellent opportunities for seeing evidence of past Cascadia earthquakes and tsunami, visiting EarthScope instruments measuring ground movement, learning about both the benefits and challenges of living in a geologically active region, and discussing opportunities for community hazard mitigation.

Field trip guides

All CEETEP workshops include a field trip day during which participants visit sites featuring earthquake and tsunami geology and preparedness.

Virtual field experiences

Virtual field experiences (VFE) offer a way to share field trip sites with learners unable to visit in person. VFEs have been prepared for two areas in coastal Cascadia (southwest Washington and northwest Oregon) that showcase evidence used to build our understanding of past earthquake/tsunami and GPS stations measuring ongoing deformation.
