During the 2006 field season, the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys conducted remote mapping as part of the Kavik River STATEMAP project.This surficial-geologic mapping was conducted to provide additional detail to the STATEMAP comprehensive geologic mapping as well as to serve as a stand-alone map publication.

The engineering-geologic map, on two sheets, is derived electronically from the surficial-geologic map of the initial segment of the proposed natural gas pipeline corridor through the upper Tanana valley (Reger and others, PIR 2008-3a) using Geographic Information System (GIS) software. Surficial-geologic units were initially identified by interpretation of false-color ~1:63,000-scale infrared aerial photographs taken in July 1978, August 1980, and August 1981 and locally verified by field checking in 2006 and 2007. The map shows the distribution of surficial-geologic and bedrock units grouped genetically with common properties that are typically significant for engineering applications.

This map is the result of field investigations by DGGS in 1997 and 1998. This geologic map and report supersede the previously released Public Data File 99-24C, Preliminary surficial-geologic map of the Healy A-6 Quadrangle, southcentral Alaska. The current map has been updated to include mapping of areas adjacent to the Healy A-6 Quadrangle. Field investigations were part of a two-year mapping program to provide geologic ground truth for airborne geophysical surveys flown by DGGS in the Chulitna region of southcentral Alaska during 1996.

The Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) has conducted 1:63,360-scale geologic mapping of the Eagle A-1 Quadrangle.The area is part of the 100-year old Fortymile mining district and is located in eastern Alaska near the Alaska-Yukon border. This map illustrates the distribution of a variety of unconsolidated deposits and undifferentiated bedrock in the Eagle A-1 Quadrangle, Fortymile mining district. It was prepared by the interpretation of 1:63,360-scale, false-color, infrared aerial photographs taken from July 1978 through August 1981 and is locally verified by ground observations during field visits.The results should be considered reconnaissance in nature. The dominant unconsolidated deposit...

Between 27 and 11 kyr ago, during the last major (Naptowne) glaciation, the northwestern and western Kenai Peninsula and the Cook Inlet trough were covered by ice except for local nunataks and small refugia, like the Caribou Hills. Landforms related to four glacial stades are recognized and paleogeographic maps document ice limits, drainage systems, glacial-impounded lakes, and glaciomarine terraces. Numerous multidisciplinary studies of glacial, vegetation, and insect histories document Holocene climatic changes.

The Quaternary Geologic Map of the Lake Erie 4� x 6� Quadranglewas mapped as part of the Quaternary Geologic Atlas of the United States.The atlas was begun as an effort to depict the areal distribution ofsurficial geologic deposits and other materials that accumulated orformed during the past 2+ million years, the period that includes allactivities of the human species. These materials are at the surface ofthe earth. They make up the "ground" on which we walk, the "dirt" inwhich we dig foundations, and the "soil" in which we grow crops. Mostof our human activity is related in one way or another to these surfacematerials that are referred to collectively by many geologists asregolith, the mantle of fragmental and...

The surficial geologic map of the Eastern and Central United Statesdepicts the areal distribution of surficial geologic deposits and othermaterials that accumulated or formed during the past 2+ million years,the period that includes all activities of the human species. Thesematerials are at the surface of the earth. They make up the "ground"on which we walk, the "dirt" in which we dig foundations, and the �soil�in which we grow crops. Most of our human activity is related in oneway or another to these surface materials that are referred tocollectively by many geologists as regolith, the mantle of fragmentaland generally unconsolidated material that overlies the bedrockfoundation of the continent. The map is based...

This geologic map was produced by merging a bedrock geologic map and a surficial geologic map of the Eagle A-1 Quadrangle. Surficial geologic units were determined by a combination of air photo interpretation and site-specific field investigations. Bedrock geologic units were determined by using a combination of airborne magnetic and electromagnetic surveys, several months of fieldwork, geochemical data, and laboratory investigations. These maps are the result of new field investigations by DGGS in 1999 and 2001.
