SURFACE FAULTING HAZARDS AT THE KWISPAA LNG SITE, VANCOUVER ISLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA

Vancouver Island lies in the hanging wall of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, so future coseismic rupture on crustal faults is a concern. We used lidar DEMs, geophysical surveys, and field mapping to examine possible evidence for post-glacial displacement on 3 bedrock faults near the site. There was no geomorphic or stratigraphic evidence of such displacement.
