One of the foundations of the Alaska Earthquake Center’s work is the network of monitoring stations that span the state. This network relies on a wide array of land use agreements and local partners. Participants include state and federal agencies, tribal organizations, local and regional Native corporations, city governments, schools, libraries, and private individuals. Their generous participation is what allows the Earthquake Center to serve Alaska’s communities.
Keeping our stations functioning in Alaska’s extreme conditions often requires maintenance visits to remote locations. Our permit partners sometimes assist with on-site assessment or equipment repair, helping keep the network running.
