Summary:Oblique view of a highly generalized animation of a subduction zone where an oceanic plate is subducting beneath a continental plate. This scenario can happen repeatedly on a 100-500 year cycle. The process which produces a mega-thrust earthquake would generate a tsunami (not depicted here).
