Assistant professor Christine Regalla has been awarded nearly $350,000 to research the tectonics of the northwestern United States and southwestern Canada. Regalla is joined in the project, “Collaborative Research: Permanent forearc strain partitioning in Northern Cascadia,” by Kristin D. Morell of UC – Santa Barbara. The National Science Foundation award begins this week and continues through March 2021.  Regalla and Morell write, “This work will provide the first constraints on the seismic hazard posed by crustal faults in populated areas of southern British Columbia and will train undergraduate and graduate students in the identification and characterization of active shallow faults.”
