Photo Galleries of Glacier Effects of the M7.9 Denali Fault Earthquake on November 3, 2002

The photos posted here are designed to be a visual record on November 7, 2002 of the area of the M7.9 Denali Fault earthquake of November 3, 2002 in the central and eastern Alaska Range. While many of the photos show spectacular effects of the earthquake, others show no effects. This may be because there were no effects, the photo was taken too high or too far away, or the lighting was too poor. The photos that show no effects are posted because they may be of equal interest to some investigations. Much of the area was in deep shadows due to low sun angles at this time of year in Alaska making it difficult to photograph. Advanced digital enhancement can often bring out extraordinary features in some of these photos that otherwise show very little. A few of the photos here have been so enhanced, but not all. Probably the fewest and least dramatic effects are visible in the Yanert Glacier area and the earthquake epicenter and West Fork Glacier areas. If time is limited, it is suggested that the viewer of these pages start in the Susitna Glacier area or farther east. Images here are reduced resolution. 

Technical note: Norton Internet Security (NIS) Add Blocking has been found to block some thumbnails due to its block by dimension feature. Am currently trying to resolve this issue. In the meantime, it is suggested that you turn NIS Add Blocking off to view these pages.
