Summary
Abstract: Three decades after the last Alaska-wide compilations of glacial
geology (Karlstrom et al., 1964; Coulter et al., 1965), we have
coordinated a broadly collaborative effort to create a digital map of
reconstructed Pleistocene glaciers. The Alaska PaleoGlacier Atlas is a
geospatial summary of Pleistocene glaciation across Alaska. The layers
in the atlas depict: 1) the ... View entire text
