Abstract

On Nov. 8, 1980, a major earthquake (magnitude 6.5-7.2) occurred 60 km off the coast of N California. A survey of the area using high-resolution seismic-reflection and side-scan sonar equipment revealed the presence of extensive sediment failure and flows in a zone about 1 km wide and 20 km long that trends parallel to the shelf on the very gently sloping (less than 0.25o) Klamath River delta.-from Authors
