On the Kenai Peninsula the situation is better. A detailed leveling survey was conducted along the major roads of the Kenai Peninsula shortly after the earthquake. While this leveling survey was tied to that done along Turnagain Arm, no subsequent systematic releveling was performed on the peninsula. In recent years, however, extensive GPS surveys have been conducted in this region. Some of the GPS observations have been made at the surviving leveling marks, while others have been made at sites better suited for GPS techniques.

The two sites were connected by a leveling survey and the tide gauges were run at the two sites 36 COHEN AND FREYMUELLER simultaneously for a couple months to verify that the height record was not distorted by the change. 1 mm/yr, at Women’s Bay (1985 – 1998), appears to reflect a change in the postseismic uplift rate, not a change in measurement location. Cohen and Freymueller (2001) found that the subsidence rate has decreased at Cordova since the earthquake. 14 mm/yr2. About 17 years was required for a 50% reduction in the subsidence rate from its peak value.

11 the observed motion was a trenchward tilting. Small and Wharton (1972) interpreted the tilting as subsidence at Portage, citing as additional evidence the results of a survey taken in 1965 that they felt demonstrated further subsidence at Anchorage and 28 COHEN AND FREYMUELLER Fig. 11.

Portage is located near the southern end of Turnagain Arm (Fig.
