King 5 News: "Scientist still working to predict timing of earthquakes"
"GPS [is] a very powerful tool in terms of forecasting the size and the location of future earthquakes.
The GPS network does allow us to say where and it allows us to say how big.
As for when, there's no predicting when at those time scales," said Melbourne. But slow moving earthquakes happen
almost like clockwork along the Cascadia subduction zone. "So that's given us a whole new window
into what this fault is doing," said Melbourne. "Where that will lead in terms of predictability remains to be seen."
