The Alaska Earthquake Center is dedicated to reducing the impacts of earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions in Alaska. We provide definitive earthquake information derived from an expansive network of seismic monitoring stations. We are scientists, engineers, data analysts, field technicians and educators with a shared passion for working in the real-time geology of Alaska. We are motivated by the reality that some of the great tragedies of our time are caused by earthquakes, as well as the knowledge that earthquakes are a powerful tool in understanding the science, hazards and resources of the landscape around us. The center is housed at the Geophysical Institute on the campus of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
