Visualization of the seismic activity in Alaska. Each earthquake location (hypocenter) is depicted as a point (~128,854 earthquakes) that are color-coded by time. In combination, these earthquakes map out the subduction zone that results from the Pacific Plate subducting beneath the North American Plate along the Aleutian trench. For reference we include an outline of the world boundaries (purple lines) and a portion of the topography near the region of interest (darker colors represent higher elevations while lighter colors represent lower elevations).
