Barry Arm, Alaska Landslide and Tsunami Monitoring

Science Center Objects

A large steep slope in the Barry Arm fjord 30 miles (50 kilometers) northeast of Whittier, Alaska has the potential to fall into the water and generate a tsunami that could have devastating local effects on those who live, work, and recreate in and around Whittier and in northern Prince William Sound.

The U.S. Geological Survey is supporting the monitoring efforts in the Barry Arm fjord in Alaska. Please see these sites for information:
