Scientific & Technical Reports - The 2002 Denali Fault earthquake

19-Nov-2002 update

PLEASE NOTE:   IF YOU ARE PLANNING ANY FIELD DEPLOYMENTS TO STUDY THE EARTHQUAKE, WE REQUEST THAT YOU PLEASE CONTACT DONNA EBERHART-PHILLIPS, USGS Anchorage, and make her aware of your plans.  She is in contact frequent contact with DGGS and UAF, hence knows of their plans as well.    Contact information for Donna:

Donna Eberhart-Phillips, USGS Anchorage (907) 786-7019;  (907) 786-7425 fax deberhart@usgs.gov 

More detailed information follows under the following headings.

1)    Geologic plans

2)    Preliminary geologic observations

3)    Geotechnical observations

4)    Seismological observations/instrument deployments

5)    Stress transfer modeling

6)    Geodetic observations

7) Remote Sensing

8) Gravity and Aeromagnetic

9)    InSAR coverage looks very promising

10)    Far distance effects of the seismic waves


GEOLOGIC PLANS


PRELIMINARY GEOLOGIC OBSERVATIONS

See new photos of November 7 reconnaissance by Alaska Science Center


GEOTECHNICAL OBSERVATIONS/PLAN

From Christina Neal afternoon of 11/19/02:

Aeromap update:
1 - they have completed the remaining 1:6000 scale gaps; prints are in
process, the second batch of eastern rupture negs rae available for viewing
2 - they are still on call for 1:25,000 line but asked at what point do
they call it off due to snow cover? answer: until they hear from Peter H.
3 - for 1:6000 set, 650 print set costs ~7680$ to reproduce. I do not know
about negotiating bulk discounts.
4 - FEMA has contacted Aeromap about possible value added products from
these and other photos: DEMS, maps, etc. Possible coordination of
requests?
