According to Hawley and study co-researcher Richard Allen, director of the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory , Juan de Fuca
's gash is probably because of a weak zone.
William Hawley and Richard Allen, from the University of California, Berkeley, investigated a peculiar region below central Oregon where a chunk of the Juan de Fuca
plate appears missing.
Not surprisingly, scientists are interested in understanding as much as they can about the Juan de Fuca
Also, in our study area, we caught steelhead that were assigned to the genetic stock group from Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca
, indicating that they did not migrate north immediately (we caught them at locations that were south of the entrance to the Strait of Juan de Fuca
, through which they pass).
As both Queen Charlotte Strait off northern Vancouver Island and Juan De Fuca
strait off southern Vancouver Island lie in a southeasterly direction from the open ocean (Fig.
It has been hypothesized that the Strait of Juan de Fuca
acts as a semipermeable barrier preventing C.
Studies of the Fe isotope compositions of hydrothermal fluids from hydrothermal vent on the Pacific ridge [6,19], the Atlantic ridge [6, 18, 21], and the Juan de Fuca
ridge  revealed that the Fe isotope compositions of these vent fluids varied significantly (Figure 2).
The entire Northwest was only labelled, "Parts Un Known" and was devoid of much detail, with exception of the, "River of the West", which was actually the Columbia River and the Juan de Fuca
That's where the Juan de Fuca

. His musical influences include Pacific Northwest legends Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and Nirvana.
The Cascadia fault forms where the oceanic Juan De Fuca
tectonic plate - one of the giant masses of solid rock that form the rigid outermost shell of our planet - is sliding under the North American tectonic plate that holds our continent.
