Published by means of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph sequence, quantity 179.

This multidisciplinary monograph offers the 1st sleek integrative precis considering the main superb energetic tectonic platforms in North America.

Encompassing seismology, tectonics, geology, and geodesy, it contains papers that summarize the nation of information, together with heritage fabric for these unusual with the zone; deal with worldwide hypotheses utilizing information from Alaska; and try out vital international hypotheses utilizing facts from this region.

It is equipped round 4 significant themes:

  • subduction and nice earthquakes on the Aleutian Arc,
  • the transition from strike slip to accretion and subduction of the Yakutat microplate,
  • the Denali fault and comparable buildings and their position in accommodating everlasting deformation of the overriding plate, and
  • regional integration and large-scale versions and using info from Alaska to handle vital worldwide questions and hypotheses.

The book's e-book close to the start of the nationwide technology Foundation's EarthScope undertaking makes it specifically well timed simply because Alaska could be the least understood sector in the EarthScope footprint, and curiosity within the zone will be anticipated to upward push with time as extra EarthScope info turn into available.
