This digital terrain model of the Icy Bay, Alaska region consists of elevations acquired using airborne Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR) merged with bathymetry interpolated from various hydrographic surveys. Hydrographic information for Icy Bay and the lower 9 km of Taan Fiord was primarily from hydrographic surveys and a nautical chart published by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Near the head of Taan Fiord, hydrographic survey points were from Meigs and others (2006). The reach of Taan Fiord between the study of Meigs and others (2006) and the NOAA hydrographic data was interpolated using manually drawn contours.
This digital terrain model of the Icy Bay, Alaska region consists of elevations acquired using airborne Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR) merged with bathymetry interpolated from various hydrographic surveys and inferred landslide slip surface elevations for a landslide that occurred on October 17, 2015 near the terminus of Tyndall Glacier. Hydrographic information for Icy Bay and the lower 9 km of Taan Fiord was primarily from hydrographic surveys and a nautical chart published by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Near the head of Taan Fiord, hydrographic survey points were from Meigs and others (2006). The reach of Taan Fiord between the study of Meigs and others (2006)...
Normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) is an indicator of vegetation health and density. High NDVI values generally correspond to dense vegetation and low NDVI values generally correspond to sparsely vegetated or barren areas. NDVI was calculated for pan-sharpened Landsat 8 Operational Land Imager images acquired on May 13, 2015 and May 15, 2016 for the region around Icy Bay, Alaska. NDVI results from 2015 were subtracted from results for 2016 to produce a change image. The change image can be used to assess changes in vegetation patterns resulting from a landslide that occurred near Tyndall Glacier in October, 2015 and generated a tsunami in Taan Fiord, an arm of Icy Bay. Positive change in NDVI generally...

Landslide-generated tsunamis pose significant hazards, but developing models to assess these hazards presents unique challenges. George and others (2017) present a new methodology in which a depth-averaged two-phase landslide model (D-Claw) is used to simulate all stages of landslide dynamics and subsequent tsunami generation, propagation, and inundation. Because the model describes the evolution of solid and fluid volume fractions, it treats both landslides and tsunamis as special cases of a more general class of phenomena. Therefore, the landslide and tsunami can be seamlessly and efficiently simulated as a single-layer continuum with evolving solid-grain concentrations, and with wave generation via mass displacement...

High-resolution single channel minisparker seismic-reflection data were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in May 2014 in southern Prince William Sound southwest of Chenega and from southwest of Montague Island, Alaska. Data were collected aboard the Alaska Department of Fish and Game vessel, R/V Solstice, during field activity 2014-622-FA, using a 500 Joule SIG 2-mille minisparker sound source and a single channel streamer and recorded with a Triton SB-Logger.
