Imaging The M7.9 Denali Fault Earthquake 2002 Rupture At The Delta River Using SASW, LIDAR, and RADAR
On the Denali fault, ~15% of the surface expression of the 2002 right-lateral oblique rupture was up to the north at the Delta River. We sought to estimate the depth of bedrock on either side of the fault and total relative uplift using Spectral Analysis of Surface Waves. On the Delta River the vertical uplift was between 60-80cm up to the north during the 2002 event.
