A summary chapter provides an overview and presents a possible model for Alaska's Phanerozoic evolution. The Geology of Alaska is the largest publication produced in the Decade of North American Geology program, a fitting tribute to this magnificent area.

The structural configuration of the Alaska Peninsula, based on recent field data, is shown in a Geology of the Alaska peninsula book geologic map (,), and the regional geology of the area is presented on a new tectonic map (,).

These maps, together with new stratigraphic data, provide a basis for interpreting the structural evolution of the Alaska Peninsula area.

The Kenai Peninsula's Golden Geology. 65 million years ago, the Kenai Mountains originated from the sands and muds deposited on the sea floor. In the process of their formation, hot silica-rich fluids penetrated the young rocks and then crystallized to form milky white quartz veins.

Excerpt from Geology of the Seward Peninsula Tin Deposits, Alaska Since the discovery of stream tin in the York region by the Geo logical Survey in the tin deposits of this district have been dis cussed in several Survey publications.

In all cases, however, the statements were based on investigations that were incidental by: Alaska geology, though, doesn’t only consist of the catastrophic. Besides a vast array of massive glaciers, Alaska features geologic oddities like Katmai National Park’s Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes, where ash from a volcanic eruption remains in.

The Cook Inlet Basin is a northeast-trending collisional forearc basin that stretches from the Gulf of Alaska into South central Alaska, just east of the Matanuska is located in the arc-trench gap between the Alaska-Aleutian Range batholith and contains roug cubic miles of sedimentary rocks.

These sediments are mainly derived from Triassic, Jurassic and. Page 26 - In addition to these basalts, the cherts are associated with diabase and gabbro, and in the southern Kenai Peninsula dunite occurs with the cherts.

Besides the basic igneous rocks, the cherts are cut by dykes of dacite porphyry. Palache makes the following statements concerning these rocks: With the exception of the dike rocks, this section bears an altogether extraordinary.

Rare and accidental species from Eurasia are also included, so birders will be ready for the unexpected. A comprehensive chapter on avian habitats guides readers through the diverse ecology of the Seward Peninsula, while a chapter on climate and geology will enhance understanding of how birds survive on this remote peninsula.

Gold was discovered in Alaska in in gravel along the Kenai River in southern Alaska. Nearly 2 decades later () another discovery on the Seward Peninsula near Nome also failed to attract much interest. By, the first commercial gold deposits were found in gravel at Windham and Sumdum Bays near the future site of : The Gem Hunter.
