An investigation into the liquefaction potential of tsunamis and storm surges on coastal deposits
"Historic earthquakes have been recorded in other regions besides the San Andreas Fault in the West coast and the New Madrid Seismic Zone in Missouri. These earthquakes have left behind liquefaction features which are now being studied by researchers in an attempt to identify paleoliquefaction features and thereby to ascertain prehistoric seismicity of a region, especially where there are few surface manifestations of faults and the recurrence intervals of large earthquakes are usually longer than the historical record. But the cause for liquefaction could be seismic or non-seismic. This research investigates if ocean wave pounding can cause pore pressure increase that may lead to liquefaction"--Abstract, leaf iii.
