As part of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) effort to make final recommendations of federal land parcels to be considered for selection by the State of Alaska according to provisions of the Statehood Act, a decision was made to identify and evaluate potential access corridors. Corridor maps were compiled for a total of 78 quadrangles throughout Alaska. This map suite shows relevant geologic information at a scale of 1:250,000 for 10-mile-wide corridors straddling centerlines for proposed access routes throughout Alaska. The maps are based on geologic data compiled from existing, published mapping. Each compiled corridor geology map was used to derive maps of potential construction materials, data quality,...

In July 2012, a helicopter-based crew photographed approximately 22 miles (35 km) of shoreline near Golovin, Alaska, from the Yuonglik River delta southeast to Portage Creek. During this flight 572 oblique aerial photographs were collected and spatially referenced using a Garmin Dakota 20 handheld GPS.

Nearshore bathymetry is a vital link that joins offshore water depths to coastal topography. Seamless water depth information is a critical input parameter for reliable storm surge models, enables the calculation of sediment budgets, and is necessary baseline data for a range of coastal development decisions. Bathymetric data collection capabilities of an active coastal geohazard field program operated by the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) were expanded in 2012. Resultant datasets presented in this report include nearshore bathymetric measurements of critical shallow-water coastal areas in the vicinity of six western Alaska communities: Gambell, Golovin, Hooper Bay, Savoonga, Shishmaref,...

The outcrop structural data in this publication were collected in 2006 during geologic field mapping within the Council airborne geophysical survey tract. The data were acquired to produce a geologic map, to determine the area's structural history, and to evaluate its' mineral potential with respect to these structures.

This Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) Raw Data File presents 40Ar/39Ar age dating results for a volcanic whole-rock sample, selected minerals from various metamorphic rocks and igneous dikes, and white mica from both metamorphic- and hydrothermal-mineralization-related veins encountered on the southern Seward Peninsula, as well as select minerals from one plutonic rock from Cape Denbeigh, eastern Norton Sound, Alaska. Cooling ages on glaucophane, barroisite, amphibole, paragonite, and biotite from metamorphic rocks range from 84 Ma to 209 Ma. The cooling age of white mica in a possible fault zone is 144 Ma. Cooling ages on late-stage metamorphic minerals (winchite and white mica) from veins...

On November 8, 2011, an extra-tropical cyclone with a low pressure of 945 millibars developed over the Bering Sea and moved northeast across the western coast of Alaska. This large storm brought high winds (gusts of up to 85 mph) to the entire region and a storm surge of approximately 3 meters to parts of Norton Sound. The storm caused extensive flooding in the lower portion of Golovin on the afternoon of November 9, 2011. A team of Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) scientists visited Golovin on November 15, 2011, to document peak water levels, runup elevations, and inundation extents caused by this event. These data were combined with photographs taken by local residents during the event...

The State of Alaska's Strategic and Critical Minerals (SCM) Assessment project, a State-funded Capital Improvement Project (CIP), is designed to evaluate Alaska's statewide potential for SCM resources. The SCM Assessment is being implemented by the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS), and involves obtaining new airborne-geophysical, geological, and geochemical data. For the geochemical part of the SCM Assessment, thousands of historical geochemical samples from DGGS, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and U.S. Bureau of Mines archives are being reanalyzed by DGGS using modern, quantitative, geochemical-analytical methods. The objective is to update the statewide geochemical database to more clearly...

The rock samples in this publication were collected in 2006 during geologic field mapping within the Council airborne geophysical survey tract. The analyses were acquired to aid interpretation and development of the geologic map and evaluation of the area's mineral potential. To further geologic understanding of the area, igneous and metamorphic rock samples were selected for whole-rock geochemical analysis. Unweathered or minimally weathered rock samples were preferentially selected for analysis. Non-carbonate carbon analyses were obtained to determine the percentage of graphite in metasedimentary rocks. To help evaluate the area's mineral resource potential, rock samples were selected for geochemical analysis;...

This publication presents lidar data collected over the community of Golovin, on the southern coast of the Seward Peninsula in western Alaska (fig. 1). The original data were collected on November 5, 2013, by Quantum Spatial. The complete, classified lidar dataset was purchased by the State of Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys in 2014 in support of coastal vulnerability mapping efforts. For the purposes of open access to lidar datasets in coastal regions of Alaska, this collection is being released as a Raw Data File with an open end-user license. The horizontal datum for this dataset is NAD83 (CORS96), the vertical datum is NAVD88, Geoid 09, and it is projected in UTM Zone 3 North. Units are in...
