“Our data will be used to update the Alaska seismic hazard map, part of the collection of USGS maps used to support effective building codes.
Other federal agencies, such as the National Park Service, NOAA, U. Forest Service, and FEMA use our data to increase public safety related to earthquake and tsunami hazards.” The team hopes to also determine how fast the tectonic plates on each side of the fault slide past each other and how this fault “slip” has altered the landscape at Icy Point.
The rate (or speed) that a fault slips controls the time between earthquakes, and is a critical input for seismic hazard assessments in a region.

The earthquake was studied right after it occurred by USGS geologist Don Miller and University of California, Berkeley geologist Don Tocher.
Last year, Witter and his team picked up the trail to use new technologies to understand the Fairweather Fault’s motion.
