Birthplace of Alaska’s 1964 Earthquake: Prince William Sound, June 8 - 15, 2014
50 years ago this March, the largest magnitude earthquake recorded in North America (9.2), second-largest worldwide, occurred in Alaska. The 1964 Alaska "Good Friday" earthquake ushered in a paradigm shift in earth science, convincing most earth scientists that plate tectonic theory best explains the dynamic behavior of Earth's crust.
OLLI at University of Alaska Fairbanks invites members of other OLLIs to join a once-in-a-lifetime cruise of Prince William Sound to visit the birthplace of the great earthquake. Cost is $3180 per person.
To register, call UAF-OLLI at 907-474-6607.
