Crustal Deformation in the Southcentral Alaska Subduction Zone (S.C. Cohen, J.T. Freymueller).

  1. Introduction.
  2. Tectonic, geologic, and seismologic setting.
  3. Observed crustal motion. 3.1. Coseismic crustal motion. 3.2. Preseismic and interseismic (pre-1964) crustal motion. 3.3. Postseismic and interseismic (post-1964) crustal motion. 3.4. Multidecadal postseismic uplift deduced from comparisons of GPS and leveling observations. 3.5. Contemporary GPS observations of crustal motion: spatial and temporal variability.
  4. Models of Southcentral Alaska preseismic and postseismic crustal deformation.
  5. Summary. Acknowledgements. References. Relating Fault Mechanics to Fault Zone Structure (R.L. Biegel, C.G. Sammis).
