The Great Alaska Earthquake Ma /5(7). Alaska Earthquake Ma Uplifted sea floor at Cape Cleare on Montague Island in Prince William Sound in the area of the greatest recorded tectonic uplift on land (33 feet). The very gently slopping flat rocky surface with the white coating which lies between the cliffs and the water is about a quarter of a mile wide.

Two earthquake faults exposed on Montague Island are subsidiary northwest-dipping reverse faults along which the northwest blocks were relatively displaced a maximum of 26 feet, and both blocks were upthrown relative to sea level.ALASKA EARTHQUARE, MA INTRODUCTION On Maan earth- quake shook parts of Alaska and caused great devasbation in inhab- ited areas.

However, maximum up- lift took place, and large bedrock faults were active, on Montague Island, an uninhabited island off the southern coast of Alaska. The southern end of Montzlgue. And that the seismicity is pretty much confined to the upper part of that panel and of the faults breaking to the surface.

And you have a zone, actually, of fairly high seismicity right pretty much where we speculate that there’s an extension of the faulting on that one island – that Montague Island.
