Earthquake Information Networks

UA is providing definitive earthquake information to the public, emergency managers, scientists and engineers. This information is derived from a network of seismic monitoring stations that we operate across the state. Based on a mandate from the Alaska Legislature and the many stakeholders we support with data, products and outreach, UAF’s Alaska Earthquake Center ensures safe and economically sound construction, maintenance and long-term operation of Alaska infrastructure; on-site monitoring for major facilities (pipelines, mines, and military installations); and tsunami mapping, thus enabling evacuation planning in nearly every major Alaska coastal community.
