Regional tsunami hazard assessment for communities on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska

We assess potential tsunami hazard for three coastal communities on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska: Anchor Point, Nanwalek, and Port Graham. The primary tsunami hazard for these communities is

Tsunami inundation maps for the city of Sand Point, Alaska

Staff from Alaska Earthquake Center, Geophysical Institute and Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys evaluated potential tsunami hazards for the city of Sand Point, on Popof Island in

Changes in population evacuation potential for tsunami hazards in Seward, Alaska, since the 1964 Good Friday earthquake

AbstractPedestrian evacuation modeling for tsunami hazards typically focuses on current land-cover conditions and population distributions. To examine how post-disaster redevelopment may influence

Tsunami-based evidence for large eastern Aleutian slip during the 1957 earthquake

Abstract The Aleutian subduction zone is capable of generating magnitude ~9 earthquakes that have local impact and broadcast their destructive power across the Pacific through tsunamis. Field surveys

Tsunami recurrence in the eastern Alaska-Aleutian arc: A Holocene stratigraphic record from Chirikof Island, Alaska

Despite the role of the Alaska-Aleutian megathrust as the source of some of the largest earthquakes and tsunamis, the history of its pre–twentieth century tsunamis is largely unknown west of the

Variations in population vulnerability to tectonic and landslide-related tsunami hazards in Alaska

Effective tsunami risk reduction requires an understanding of how at-risk populations are specifically vulnerable to tsunami threats. Vulnerability assessments primarily have been based on single

Revised parameters of the September 6, 1866 Earthquake, which was erroneously located in Avacha Bay

The catalogs of the Kamchatka region contain a damaging earthquake of M = 7.0 that occurred about 100 km east of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskii City on September 6, 1866. The basis for this location was a

Numerical Modelling of Tsunamis Generated by Hypothetical Landslides in the Strait of Georgia, British Columbia

Abstract—A modified and corrected version of the viscous slide model of Jiang and LeBlond (1994) is used to assess the tsunami risk associated with hypothetical underwater slope failures in two

Complex earthquake rupture and local tsunamis

[1] In contrast to far-field tsunami amplitudes that are fairly well predicted by the seismic moment of subduction zone earthquakes, there exists significant variation in the scaling of local tsunami

[With the United States troops sent to Alaska in 1868, following its purchase from Russia the preceding year, was Eli Lundy Huggins, first lieutenant, Second Artillery, a twenty-five-yearold veteran

Spatial distribution of turn-of-the-century seismicity along the Alaska-Aleutian Arc

Abstract Epicenters determined for instrumentally observed earthquakes occurring around the turn of the century have figured prominently in estimates of seismic hazard along the Alaska-Aleutian Arc.

Preliminary Notes on Southeastern Alaska Earthquake

Seismic potential of the Queen Charlotte-Alaska-Aleutian Seismic Zone

The 5000 km long Queen Charlotte-Alaska-Aleutian seismic zone is subdivided into 17 unequally sized segments. Their boundaries are delineated based on the prior distribution of large and great
