The Gulf of Alaska is one of the most productive marine ecosystems on Earth, supporting salmon fisheries that alone provide nearly $1 billion per year in economic benefits to Southeast Alaska. Glaciers are central to many of the area’s natural processes and economic activities, but the rates of glacier loss in Alaska are among the highest on Earth, with a 26-36 percent reduction in total volume expected by the end of the century. This project brought together scientists and managers at a workshop to synthesize the impacts of glacier change on the region’s coastal ecosystems and to determine related research and monitoring needs. Collected knowledge shows that melting glaciers are expected to have cascading effects...

Alaska Division of Oil and Gas personnel collected and interpreted various data sources related to the interpretation of the Base Tertiary unconformity surface in the Cook Inlet Basin, Alaska.Data sources included public literature, public well data information (from the AOGCC-Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission), a palynology database (Greater Cook Inlet Stratigraphic Palynology Control Database and Stud,Zippi, P.A., 2006) and over 2000 miles of 2D marine seismic data (CI-88 and CI-89 licensed from, and complements of, CGGVeritas.) Interpreted formation tops of the Base Tertiary unconformity are tabulated on the map.

The Hydrology Point Feature Class defines natural/semi natual point hydrographic features (springs, seeps, tanks, guzzlers…) on RSL. The data for this point feature class was provided by the refuge.
