Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This article highlights the M3.9 earthquake near Banff on February 13th, 2021. This was a widely felt earthquake in the eastern Canadian Cordillera and serves as a reminder of rare, larger earthquakes that have occurred in the Canadian Cordillera in the past. These rare earthquakes allow us to improve our national seismic hazard models to be better prepared for future large earthquakes.
