I began studies of the region of the 1964 Alaska earthquake in 1995, during my first summer in Alaska. Early work focused on postseismic deformation, but as soon as we had repeat GPS observations from the area we discovered two unexpected things: postseismic deformation from the earthquake remained large more than 30 years after the event, and there were enormous along-strike variations in the pattern of elastic strain observed in Prince William Sound and the Kenai Peninsula.

The present project is a collaboration with Doug Christensen and Geoff Abers (now at Lamont), and combines a temporary broadband seismic deployment with continued GPS observations.
