This digital elevation model provides a tool for calibrating tsunami risk to observations of the 1945 Makran tsunami in Karachi Harbour. The DEM bathymetry is derived from soundings made mainly during the first eight years after the tsunami. Although deficient in portraying intertidal backwaters and upland topography, the DEM accurately depicts the sheltered setting of one of the two tide gauges that recorded the 1945 tsunami.

Album caption and index card: Hebgen Lake earthquake. This photograph, taken on the morning of August 18, shows an overtuned Cadillac along the Red Canyon fault scarp where it crosses U.S. Highway 191 near the Duck Creek Motel.

Index card: This photograph, taken in 1960, shows three of the people who were involved in the Hebgen Lake earthquake. On the left is a gentleman whose name I cannot recall but who was camped in the Bear Creek Campground and was one of the few who alerted many of the campers in that general area that an earthquake had occurred. The man in the center is George Hungerford, foreman of the dam, who figured so prominently in many of the stories involving Hebgen Dam. The man on the right is Witkind, U.S. Geological Survey geologist. Dog is "Tawny", Witkind's dog. Hebgen Lake earthquake, Gallatin County, Montana. August 1959.
