Alaska geologist headed to Haiti

Posted: Wednesday, January 27, 2010

FAIRBANKS - An Alaska geologist is headed to Haiti to join a team of scientists to evaluate the earthquake fault system in that country.

A massive earthquake devastated Haiti's capital city on Jan. 12.

Richard Koehler of the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys in Fairbanks is part of a team of scientists invited by the Haitian government. One goal of the team is to assess any continuing motions along the fault that could lead to future large earthquakes in the region.

Koehler's travel expenses are being paid for by the U.S. National Science Foundation.
