Abstract

Despite good evidence of present-day convergence of the Juan de Fuca and North American plates, there has been remarkably little historical seismic activity along the shallow part of the Juan de Fuca subduction zone. Although we cannot completely rule out the possibility that the plate motion is being accommodated by aseismic creep, we find that the Juan de Fuca subduction zone shares many features with other subduction zones that have experienced great earthquakes.
