Abstract

The article describes the use of a geologic map to help mitigate earthquake damage along the Denali Fault where the Trans-Alaska Pipeline crosses. Geologic mapping of bedrock and unconsolidated deposits reveals a history of horizontal right-lateral slip and local vertical separations at the fault. It was determined that the eastern 220 mile of the Denali and Totschunda fault system was the most likely segment to generate an 8+ magnitude earthquake.
