Why are researchers interested in an earthquake that occurred over 300 years ago?
Why are researchers interested in an earthquake that occurred over 300 years ago?

Hint: it’s the largest earthquake that ever hit eastern North America. So why the interest? It’s quite simple. By collecting and dating samples of wood and organic material buried in the debris of ground movements, the researchers can determine whether there have been other major quakes and thus measure the threat of earthquakes in the area.
