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.
