Denali Fault/Pipeline View (mi 216)

Denali Fault/Pipeline view. Notice how the Trans-Alaska Pipeline is built in a zigzag pattern? This allows the pipeline to expand and contract due to extreme temperature change or earthquakes. The pipeline has an earthquake detection system that measures ground movement. Computers can identify areas that should be checked after a large earthquake.
