Summary, etc.:
The March 27, 1964, earthquake dislodged slides from nine deltas in Kenai Lake. Sliding removed protruding parts of deltas and steepened delta fronts, increasing the chances of further sliding. Fathograms show that debris from large slides spread widely over the lake floor, some reaching the toe of the opposite shore.
