The engineering-geologic map is derived electronically, using Geographic Information System (GIS) software, from the surficial-geologic map of the second segment of the proposed natural gas pipeline corridor through the upper Tanana valley, a 12-mi-wide (19.3-km-wide) area that straddles the Alaska Highway through the upper Tanana River valley from the Robertson River eastward to near Tetlin Junction in the Tanacross Quadrangle (Reger and Hubbard, PIR 2009-6A). Surficial-geologic units were initially identified by interpretation of false-color ~1:65,000-scale infrared aerial photographs taken in July 1978, August 1980, and August 1981 and locally verified by field checking in 2007 and 2008. The map shows the distribution...
Engineering-geologic map of the Dalton Highway from Galbraith Lake to Slope Mountain, southern Arctic Foothills, Alaska
This derivative engineering-geologic map illustrates potential near-surface sources of various geologic materials that may be useful for construction near the Dalton Highway area, from Atigun Gorge to Slope Mountain. The map area is located in the west-central Philip Smith Mountains quadrangle. The map extends from the northern flank of the Endicott Mountains into the Arctic Foothills province. Field observations indicate that each geologic unit (for example, stream alluvium) has a definite composition or range of composition. Therefore, the probable presence of materials is interpreted from the distribution of geologic units on the geologic map of this quadrangle. Map unit descriptions also include discussion of...
Engineering-geologic database of the proposed Alaska Natural Gas Transportation System (ANGTS) corridor from Prudhoe Bay to Delta Junction, Alaska
This publication is a 6 CD-ROM compilation of data describing the bedrock, surficial, and engineering geology of a portion of the proposed Alaska Natural Gas Transportation System corridor. Maps or reports with scales of 1:250,000 or greater that cross or come within 5 miles of the centerline were included in this compilation. Two maps with scales smaller than 1:250,000 were also included: OFR 82-1071 and OFR 98-133. A complete bibliography of references used in this compilation is on the first CD-ROM of this project in ANGTSgis/RefsCited.doc. This project consists of an ArcView 3.x (AV) .apr file and a Microsoft Access 2000 (MS Access) database. The ArcView project and the Access database are linked using AccessLink,...
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.
