*Presented by:* Dr. Carl Tape, University of Alaska Fairbanks

*Abstract:* Alaska is one of the world's prolific producers of earthquakes,
including the 2002 magnitude 7.9 strike-slip earthquake on the Denali
fault, the 1964 magnitude 9.2 subduction earthquake on the Alaskan
megathrust, and the 2018 magnitude 7.1 earthquake below Anchorage.
Earthquakes occur throughout the state and are a reminder of the active
subduction, collision, and faulting that have shaped the highest mountains
in North America. Over the past five years, seismic stations have been
deployed in some of Alaska's most inaccessible regions. New seismic data
provide opportunities to characterize new fault zones and to image complex
subsurface structures, from the underlying Pacific slab to sedimentary
basins within the crust. Complex structures produce complex earthquake
ground motion that can be modeled using high-performance computational
resources. I will discuss new seismic deployments, discoveries, and
scientific frontiers in Alaska.
