Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation and Tofino Seismic Assessment will begin on Thursday, November 18, 2021, and is expected to be completed by Wednesday, November 24, 2021. 

The purpose of the geotechnical field campaign is to perform seismic site assessment using non-invasive seismic field testing in multiple locations across the Tofino and thereby map variation in seismic site conditions across the project area as part of the PSHA.

Non-invasive seismic methods will be used during field work and data collection to achieve seismic site characterization. A two-person field team will be placing seismic sensors on the ground surface.

  • 1 hour at green circle locations
  • 2 hours at yellow star locations


Little to no disruption is anticipated.
