Summary

The surficial geology and glacial stratigraphy of Fort Richardson are extremely complex. Recent mapping by the USGS shows the general distribution of surficial deposits, but details on the underlying stratigraphy remain poorly known, leaving a critical gap in the understanding of ground water conditions below Fort Richardson. A conceptual model of the subsurface stratigraphy was developed on the basis of results of recent surficial mapping, current knowledge of the glacial history studies of modern glaciers, and limited subsurface data. A confining layer below the southern half of the cantonment is likely the northern extension of an "older" ground moraine that crops out further to the south. Below the cantonment, this moraine is buried [...]
