The most recent terrace at Middleton Island dates from 1300 years ago. However, the Middleton Island estimate may not be representative. Along Turnagain and Knik Arms of Cook Inlet, Combellick (1993) estimated an average recurrence interval of 590– 780 yr, in closer agreement with the longer of the estimates from geodetic data. Similarly, Plafker et al. (1992) reported an age of 665 –895 yr for the most recent earthquake uplift in the Copper River delta. Combellick (1992) obtained evidence from Girdwood, along the Turnagain Arm, that the penultimate great earthquake in the Anchorage region occurred 700 –900 yr ago.

There is far better consistency from analyst-to-analyst in the horizontal velocities than the vertical ones, as is typically the case. 4. Models of Southcentral Alaska Preseismic and Postseismic Crustal Deformation In the preceding sections we have focused on the geodetic measurements themselves and direct inferences from those measurements that do not depend strongly on specific model assumptions. This is not to say that model assumptions have not entered either implicitly or explicitly into the results we reviewed.

Although the sites are shown as a function of distance from the trench there are considerable alongstrike variations in their locations as well.
