Study Area

Our survey across the Denali fault along the TAPS/Delta River corridor. Surface break occurred along the entire 320 km rupture. At the Delta River crossing of the Denali Fault the surface rupture was ~5.5m right lateral and 0.6-0.8m up to the north. An overview of the severity of Geotechnical damages are plotted on the right along major drainages of the Alaska Range.
