ES 20:3 (Aug 2004) Includes Section on 2002 Denali Fault, Alaska, Earthquake

The August 2004 issue of Earthquake Spectra contains a 183-page section with nine papers on the moment magnitude Mw=7.9 Denali fault, Alaska, earthquake of November 3, 2002. The nine papers cover geology, seismicity, tectonics, strong-motion measurement and estimation, geotechnical observations, and performance of buildings and industrial facilities.

This earthquake was a major event for earth scientists and geotechnical engineers. The Denali fault earthquake was the largest strike-slip earthquake in North America in almost 150 years, rupturing a 340-km section along the Susitna Glacier, Denali, and Totschunda faults in central Alaska, causing widespread landsliding and liquefaction. The earthquake provided an important set of strong-motion data at distances up to 280 km. In addition, it ruptured beneath the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System, in the first real test of a structure designed to allow fault offset. The pipeline, which transports about a million barrels of oil per day, endured the shaking and offset of the design event.
