Every few hundred years, the Cascadia subduction zone off the coast of the Pacific Northwest hosts devastating earthquakes, and there is a growing awareness of the need to be prepared for these events. An offshore cabled observatory extending the length of the Cascadia subduction zone would enhance the performance of the earthquake and tsunami early warning systems, would enable real time monitoring and predictions of the incoming tsunami, and would contribute substantially to scientific research aimed at mitigating the hazard. The University of Washington has recently initiated a study to develop a conceptual design for the U.S. portion of an offshore observatory for earthquake and tsunami early warning and research. This paper presents the motivation for this work and plans for the study.

New UW-authored children's book offers a robot's-eye view of the deep ocean

UW News, Hannah Hickey

After years working on a cabled observatory that monitors the Pacific Northwest seafloor and water above, APL-UW engineer Dana Manalang decided to share the wonder of the deep sea with younger audiences.

New deep-sea pressure sensor could monitor dangerous undersea faults

IEEE Spectrum, Amy Nordrum

A marine geophysicist and electronic engineer from the University of Washington are now testing a new self-calibrating pressure sensor that could be deployed on the seafloor as a low-cost, long-term way to monitor seismic activity.

Hacking a pressure sensor to track gradual motion along marine faults

UW News, Hannah Hickey

Engineers at the UW Applied Physics Laboratory modified an existing Paros pressure sensor. The sensitive quartz crystal that measures the seafloor pressure can now be connected to measure pressure inside its titanium instrument case, with a known pressure and another barometer to check the value.
