On the Cover…

The Cascadia Initiative, a community-based onshore and offshore seismic and geodetic experiment, is the subject of the focus section in this issue of SRL. The map here illustrates the project’s amphibious array, deployed along the Cascadia subduction zone and designed to study numerous topics including megathrust earthquakes, episodic tremor and slip, volcanic arc structure, and the formation, deformation, and hydration of the downgoing Juan de Fuca and Gorda plates. Using data now available from the experiment, the SRL focus section provides a snapshot of current research that covers various aspects of this topic, including instrument performance, seismic structure and tsunami studies, and earthquake detection.
