Active Tectonics and Seismic Potential of Alaska
Jeffrey T. Freymueller
Wiley, Jan 14, 2008 - Science - 431 pages
This multidisciplinary monograph provides the first modern integrative summary focused on the most spectacular active tectonic systems in North America.
Encompassing seismology, tectonics, geology, and geodesy, it includes papers that summarize the state of knowledge, including background material for those unfamiliar with the region; address global hypotheses using data from Alaska; and test important global hypotheses using data from this region.
It is organized around four major themes:
The book's publication near the beginning of the National Science Foundation's EarthScope project makes it especially timely because Alaska is perhaps the least understood area within the EarthScope footprint, and interest in the region can be expected to rise with time as more EarthScope data become available.
