The Denali fault of Alaska is considered by the majority of the geologic community
to be an active dextral strike-slip feature cutting across the entire width of Alaska
for over 1900 km with a prominent northward-convex surface trace. The two major
earthquakes in 2002 at the apex of the fault in the central Alaska Range, and the associated
dextral offsets in eastern Alaska appear to lend credence to the concept of a
statewide dextral strike-slip fault.
