Hydroelectric

Alaska Earth Sciences provides geologic services essential to the development of hydroelectric resources in Alaska.  This includes mapping and geologic characterization of hydro sites, seismic studies for dam foundations, drilling of dam abutments for engineering and design, surficial studies for material site identification and road alignments, and natural hazards assessments. 

Alaska Earth Sciences has supported the development of hydroelectric projects including the Tyee Lake lake-tap, tunnel design in Southeast Alaska, and the Terror Lake dam and tunnel project on Kodiak Island.
