    yes, there's been lost of studies done and more ongoing ones of the Cascadia subduction zone
    if you do some searching on youtube ( and stay away from the garbage stuff) you will find some good doco's
    done by the USGS and other institutions in the Pacific NW region.

    I has been the cause of large historic events and there is no reason to not expect more big events in the future
    just when and how big are the difficult Q's to answer

    cheers
    Dave
