Predicting the Position of Fault Strands through Borehole Correlation of the Top of Tertiary Bedrock in the Seattle Fault Zone, Seattle, Washington
Only a few strands of the Seattle Fault Zone have been identified on land in Seattle, Washington due to heavy manipulation of the landscape by repeat glaciations, geomorphic reworking, and the interference of the growing metropolitan community concealing potentially dangerous active faults below the surface. Previous ...
Geomorphic Reconstruction of Alki Point in West Seattle Based on Chronostratigraphic Relationships of Mid-Late Holocene-Aged Intertidal Deposits
A tombolo may have tied a bedrock knoll at the western tip of Alki Point to the mainland before a large magnitude 7 or greater earthquake ruptured within the Seattle fault zone, resulting in ~23 ft of uplift at Alki Point and exposing shallow beach/intertidal deposits. The purpose of this study was to (1) reconstruct the ...
