The OSU Libraries and the OSU Press have digitized Chapter 9 on tsnuamis
from Bob Yeat's' Living with earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest. It's
available in ScholarsArchive. http://hdl.handle.net/1957/20592

The book by OSU author, Robert Yeats, is written for the non-scientists and explorer the history of tsnumis in out area and their past impacts. Yeats details the differences between nearby and distant earthquakes and the waves they generate. He also suggests who people should respond.

Yeats is one of the world's leading experts on earthquakes, their causes and effects. He was among the first scientists to suggest in the mid-1980s that great earthquakes are possible in the Pacific Northwest on the Cascadia Subduction Zone. It has a geological makeup very similar to that of the subduction zone that just caused a massive earthquake, tsunami and catastrophic damage in Japan.

OSU undergraduates, graduate students and faculty, help us make your research easier! We need some volunteers willing to spend about 45 minutes testing the OSU Libraries' website and telling us what you think. We will ask you to use the website to accomplish several tasks and then answer a few questions. No prior use of the library or its website is needed.

Participants will receive a $10 OSU Bookstore gift certificate.

Your participation is confidential. You must be at least 18 years of age to participate in this study.

To volunteer, please call or email Stefanie Buck, stefanie.buck@oregonstate.edu or 541-737-7273.
