Summary, etc.:
Tectonic deformation uplifted the southern end of Montague Island as much as 33 feet during the 1964 Alaska earthquake. The uplifted shoreline is rapidly being modified by subaerial and marine processes. The 1964 raised beach was used to test the accuracy of identification of former sea-level elevations from raised beach features.
