Tips on what to do to keep safe before and during an earthquake
Because earthquakes tend to grab the most attention, the majority of the seismic record—the noise, or “background” to earthquakes—is commonly ignored.
Earthquakes happen in Alaska. A lot. How would an earthquake early warning system work here?
During 2019-2020, the Alaska Earthquake Center underwent an unprecedented expansion of our permanent seismic monitoring network.
Historically, the Alaska Earthquake Center has focused on seismic data. We currently maintain more than 250 stations across Alaska with broadband and/or strong motion seismometers.
Earthquakes reported in Alaska so far this year: 42183
