Washington State Tsunami History

I’m a Tsunami Hazards Expert at Washington Sea Grant in Seattle, WA.  I’m interested in the history of tsunamis in the Salish Sea, particularly Cascadia earthquake-generated tsunamis.

This site highlights my research on tsunamis of the last 1,000 years at two Salish Sea sites: Discovery Bay, and Lynch Cove, WA.  This research was done as a graduate student at the University of Washington in the Department of Earth and Space Sciences, and is continuing at Washington Sea Grant, also at the University of Washington.
