The University of Alaska’s unique qualifications are essential to the successful and efficient accomplishment of the continuing monitoring of earthquakes in Alaska, a high seismic hazard region with a subduction zone, active volcanoes, and high levels of crustal seismicity. The principal investigators have unique and superior expertise regarding seismicity and deformation in their regions. Specialized equipment is needed for monitoring and has been deployed by University of Alaska in the regions of monitoring. Some of the field sensors and central recording and computing equipment is university-owned and would not be available to another source. Furthermore, data from the instruments is transmitted to the universities’ facilities and relocation of the data receiving point and telemetry equipment would be costly and time-consuming.
