Field trip: Alaska 1964 earthquake and tsunami

The SSA 2014 conference in Anchorage, Alaska is over and so is the post-meeting excursion. Our friend and colleague Gösta was attending this field trip on the environmental effects of the Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964 and he sent us some nice images and a brief description of this trip. This is the second part of his report.

Meanwhile, Teresa is practising tongue twisters, just as if German wasn’t hard enough to learn already…

Now the field trip is over and the participants are on their way back home – have a safe journey!
