Sequim teen researches tsunami frequency

SEQUIM, Wash. -- In a multi-award-winning study, a young Sequim geoscientist is challenging widely held beliefs about tsunami risk and frequency on the North Olympic Peninsula, saying that a tsunami could hit the Olympic coast as early as 2040.

This researcher is just 17, but she has the attention of others in her field, including University of Washington professor and National Academy of Sciences geologist Brian Atwater.

Now she's preparing to take her report to a national meeting in Bethesda, Md., next month.

She's Marley Iredale, a well-traveled senior at Sequim High School.

Her study, "Evaluating Tsunami Risk in Discovery Bay, Washington," has won her, among other prizes, the $2,000 first place award at the Washington Junior Science and Humanities Symposium March 11 and 12 in Edmonds, and best in category at the International Science and Engineering Fair in Reno

Cool. She did her homework.

Now she needs to find a place to live that is at a higher elevation.
