Identifying Active Structures using Double-Difference Earthquake Relocations in Southwest British Columbia and the San Juan islands, Washington

Balfour, Natalie; Cassidy, J.F.; Dosso, S.E.


This paper applies double-difference earthquake relocation techniques to investigate sources of seismicity in southwest British Columbia, Canada, and the San Juan Islands, Washington. The study area is a complex region of deformation and has the potential for large earthquakes in the North Americancrust. Double-difference earthquake relocation techniques are applied to identify otherwise-hidden active structures that may pose a hazard to nearby population and infrastructure. We present evidence...[Show more]
