Our Staff

We are scientists, engineers, data analysts, field technicians and educators with a shared passion for working in the evolving geology of Alaska. We are motivated by the reality that some of the great tragedies of our time are caused by earthquakes, as well as the knowledge that earthquakes are a powerful tool for understanding our landscape and the resources it contains.
