Another Day in Paradise: An Unexpected Provision
It was another typical Kodiak morning. The temperature was cool and comfortable. The dogs and I began our morning walk as usual.

Sixty years ago, Kalsin Pond was a meadow. Then came the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake. On Tuesday afternoon, professor Ian Shennan of Durham University stomped through the marshy edge of the pond on a quest to answer a question: If a severe earthquake strikes Southcentral Alaska again, will it be limited to a small area, or will the shaking spread?
