Guided by Japanese writings from an era of shoguns, an international team of scientists today reported new evidence that an earthquake of magnitude 9 struck the northwestern United States and southwestern Canada three centuries ago. The findings are likely to affect the region’s precautions against future earthquakes and tsunamis.

The rapid depletion of at least a half million great whales from the North Pacific Ocean by intensive industrial whaling over 50 years ago may have unleashed a complex ecological chain reaction that has since rippled resoundingly from ocean to coastal ecosystems, according to a team of eight scientists, including Dr. Jim Estes, a U.S. Geological Survey research ecologist.
