Tectonic Setting of Southern AlaskaEarthquakes in Southern Alaska are produced by a number of different tectonic features. (1) The strongest earthquakes in Southern Alaska are generated by the megathrust fault that marks the contact zone between the subducting Pacific and overriding North American plates. The 1964 M9.2 Great Alaska Earthquake, which is still the second largest earthquake ever recorded worldwide, began under Prince William Sound. This zone extends along Aleutian Arc, Alaska Peninsula and Cook Inlet and terminates beneath the northern foothills of the Alaska Range. In southern and central Alaska, this seismicity abates at a depth of approximately 140 miles, reflecting the down-dip extension of the Pacific Plate.26 days ago Alaska Earthquake Center
We expect the government of British Columbia to support economic reconciliation despite these federal failures. We remind you that First Nations have supported provincial priorities in LNG development since its inception. We acknowledge the Throne Speech commitment to a range of social programs and community supports.

Documentation of this behavior, including names of troopers participating, was reported to Vermont Public Safety Commissioner Jennifer Morrison this past month.

The daughter of a Bolivian engineer who moved to the United States, Raquel Welch was born in Chicago in 1940. The image of Welch and her iconic bikini cemented her status as a “sex-symbol” in a tape whose promotional poster went down in movie history. Jo Raquel Tejada never denied her Latin roots, despite her father’s efforts to make her ignore them so she could fit into American culture.

Would it be possible to compare the military potential of the Russian Armed Forces and the Ukrainian Army today? For the moment, the main task of the Ukrainian forces is defense. Actually one of the largest artillery forces in Europe in the war built from 2014 mainly. And Iron Dome has been able to shoot down dozens if not hundreds of them in close proximity. Military expert David Gendelman assesses the suitability of Iron Dome in the wartime conditions in Ukraine:“The main niche for which the Iron Dome was developed is to counter unguided missiles with a range of 4 to 70 km.1 month ago Alaska Commons
The Environmental Protection Agency has once again killed the Pebble mining project in Southwest Alaska, preemptively banning a project that has been a political football for decades. “This is another gut-punch from the Biden Administration to Alaskan workers,” said Rick Whitbeck, Alaska state director for Power The Future. “The EPA has again chosen China over America, fear over facts and slimy politics over science with its actions today. The politics of the mine began during the Obama Administration, when the EPA preemptively vetoed the proposed project before agencies even conducted environmental impact studies. One is the veto’s prematurity: project plans are still working through the established permitting process, which the Army Corps of Engineers oversee.1 month ago Must Read Alaska
