Barnhardt, W.A., and Kayen, R.E., 2000, Radar structure of earthquake-induced, coastal landslides in
Anchorage, Alaska: Environmental Geosciences, v. 7, no. 1, p. 38-45.
- Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) was used to investigate the internal structure of two large landslides in Anchorage, Alaska that resulted from the great 1964 earthquake.
- The Government Hill and Turnagain Heights landslides occurred in similar stratigraphic and geographic settings, yet the style of ground deformation is different at each site.
- GPR data are compared with previous investigations and are shown, under certain conditions, to have utility in the identification of ancient landslides.
- Reflection surveys accurately reproduced the subsurface geometry of horst-and-graben structures and imaged finer scale features such as ground cracks and fissures.
