Summary

In 2005, the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys initiated a multi-year geologic field study focused on a corridor centered along the Alaska Highway between Delta Junction and the Canada border. The purpose of this project is to provide geologic information relevant to a proposed Alaska-Canada natural gas pipeline and other future development in the corridor. The scope of this project includes identification of active faults and characterization of seismic hazards. During the 2008 field season the active fault studies were focused on the central part of the corridor between Dot Lake and Tetlin Junction. Field studies included helicopter and fixed-wing air reconnaissance augmented by interpretation of stereo air photos, [...]

Purpose

This report is a part of ADGGS's Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline Geology and Geohazards project. The study was done in anticipation of the proposed natural gas pipeline along the Alaska Highway corridor. Recognition of potentially active faults is an important factor in design engineering of infrastructure.
