Landsat-1 and NOAA satellite imagery for the winter , and a variety of ice and sea-floor data were used to study sea-ice zonation and dynamics and their relation to bottom morphology and geology on the Beaufort Sea continental shelf of arctic Alaska. In early winter the location of the boundary between undeformed fast ice and westward-drifting pack ice of the Pacific Gyre . Introduction The U.S. Geological Survey has a long history of exploring marine geology in the Gulf of Alaska. As part of a cooperative program with other federal and state agencies, the USGS is investigating the relations between ocean-floor geology and benthic marine biohabitats. This bottom sediment map, compiled from published literature will help marine biologists develop .

CLIMATE OF ALASKA. TOPOGRPHIC FEATURES – Alaska is the westernmost extension of the North American Continent. Its east-west span covers a distance of 2, miles, and from north to south a distance of 1, miles.
The State’s coastline, 33, miles in length, is 50 percent longer than that of the conterminous United States.
In addition to the Aleutian Islands, hundreds of. Such environmental information for the three Alaskan marine and near-coastal areas is important for resource development of the outer continental shelf-The Gulf of.

Ice appears in the coastal waters. in the inner and mid-shelf, regions previously established as having a significant wind-driven component. However, outer shelf agreement was less successful due to off-shelf influences on the outer shelf observations.
Lorenzzetti et al. [, ] used a two-layer shelf-scale model to examine the shelf upwelling response to summer conditions. Continental Shelf Delimitation Process Under the LOSC, all coastal states are entitled to a continental shelf extending to nautical miles (nm) from the baseline from which the territorial sea is 1 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOSC), opened for signature 10 December21 ILMentered into force 16 November The climate of any given location in Alaska is largely determined by the climate region in which it lies.
The influence of the Northern Pacific is largely responsible for the climate of the South Central and South Eastern regions of the state.

Muench1 and J. Schumacher Contributors: S.P. Hayes R. Charnel12 G. Lagerloef C. Pearson Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory ABSTRACT.
Circulation and hydrographic conditions on the north east Gulf of Alaska continental shelf between Yakutat and Prince William Sound. Origin and definition. The last glacial period is sometimes colloquially referred to as the "last ice age", though this use is incorrect because an ice age is a longer period of cold temperature in which year-round ice sheets are present near one or both poles.
Glacials are colder phases within an ice age in which glaciers advance; glacials are separated by interglacials. Coastal-Change and Glaciological Map of the Larsen Ice Shelf Area, Antarctica: – By Jane G. Ferrigno, 1 Alison J. Cook, 2 Amy M. Mathie, 3 Richard S.

The Antarctic continental shelf is a geological feature that underlies the Southern Ocean, surrounding the continent of shelf is generally narrow and unusually deep, its edge lying at depths averaging meters (the global mean is around meters), with troughs extending as far as meters deep.
It is home to a thriving ecosystem of penguins and cold. Monthly climatology of the continental shelf waters of the South Atlantic Bight Brian O. Blanton, Alfredo Aretxabaleta, The coastal waters (shoreward of the m isobath) are signiﬁcantly inﬂuenced by atmospheric ﬂuxes, buoyancy ﬂuxes from rivers, tides, mid- and outer shelf regions depending on the mechanisms determining the.

Within Glacier Bay National Park in southeastern Alaska, the Fairweather Fault represents the onshore boundary between two of Earth’s constantly moving tectonic plates: the North American Plate and the Yakutat microplate.
in field operations supporting NOAA's Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP) in the Gulf of Alaska. One facet of this program was an exploratory field experiment in the Kodiak Island-Shelikof Strait region (Fig.
1) that included current-metermoor ings and conductivity and temperature versus depth (CTD) measurements. The seafloor of the Antarctic continental shelf and coastal zone (Fig. bottom), and to some extent that of Greenland as well, consists of a series of elongate troughs that cross the shelf in a transverse direction and some coast parallel troughs that run along (or near to) the present coast (Holtedhal, ; Anderson, ; Domack, Author: E.W.
Domack, R. Powell. Coastal temperate rainforests along the Gulf of Alaska are experiencing high rates of glacier mass loss, primarily due to changes in climate.
The high sensitivity of glaciers to climate forcing results in strong impacts on freshwater runoff from glacierized basins. Miscellaneous hydrologic and geologic observations on the inner Beaufort Sea Shelf, Alaska P.

Over the past 60 years, Alaska has warmed more than twice as rapidly as the rest of the U.S., with average annual air temperature increasing by 3°F and average winter temperature by 6°F, with substantial year-to-year and regional variability.
3 Most of the warming occurred around during a shift in a long-lived climate pattern (the Pacific Decadal Oscillation) from a cooler.
