Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This field trip guidebook is part of the 8th International Symposium on Submarine Mass Movements and Their Consequences (ISSMMTC 2018). Seven field stops around the central Salish Sea on Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia have been selected where evidence of past submarine landslides, tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, wildfires and climate change is preserved in bedrock, surficial sediments, soils and vegetation.
