Hi All,

A M8.2 earthquake occurred in Alaska today. There is a submarine fiber
optic cable with several landing points in the area, shown in the map
below. This could be a great opportunity for this DAS RCN community to
quickly instrument some of these cables with DAS to monitor aftershocks
and to hopfeully catch a M7-ish aftershock. That would be the first time
a subduction aftershock sequence is recorded by a rapid DAS deployment.
The owner of the cable is GCI (

I hope someone finds this idea actionable (available DAS interrogator,
access to GCI infrastructure, etc).
