ISBN-13: 9780875904443

Published by means of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph sequence, quantity 179.

This multidisciplinary monograph offers the 1st sleek integrative precis serious about the main dazzling energetic tectonic structures in North America.

Encompassing seismology, tectonics, geology, and geodesy, it contains papers that summarize the kingdom of information, together with heritage fabric for these surprising with the sector; deal with international hypotheses utilizing info from Alaska; and attempt very important worldwide hypotheses utilizing information from this region.

It is geared up round 4 significant themes:

  • subduction and nice earthquakes on the Aleutian Arc,
  • the transition from strike slip to accretion and subduction of the Yakutat microplate,
  • the Denali fault and similar buildings and their function in accommodating everlasting deformation of the overriding plate, and
  • regional integration and large-scale versions and using facts from Alaska to handle very important worldwide questions and hypotheses.

The book's ebook close to the start of the nationwide technological know-how Foundation's EarthScope venture makes it particularly well timed simply because Alaska is likely to be the least understood zone in the EarthScope footprint, and curiosity within the sector might be anticipated to upward thrust with time as extra EarthScope information turn into available.
