This map shows the subcrop pattern of the Mesozoic rock units present at the top Mesozoic unconformity (also commonly referred to as the base Tertiary unconformity) in Cook Inlet basin, Alaska. The subcrop is projected onto the top Mesozoic unconformity depth surface of Cook Inlet basin, Alaska, published by Shellenbaum and others (2010). Publicly available geologic and geophysical data from multiple sources were collected, interpreted, and integrated into the subcrop map. Formation picks at the top Mesozoic unconformity were determined for 109 wells. Mesozoic horizons from two regional marine two-dimensional (2-D) seismic datasets (approximately 3,300 miles) were interpreted. Eight map units were established for...
Active and potentially active faults in or near the Alaska Highway corridor, Dot Lake to Tetlin Junction, Alaska
In 2005, the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys initiated a multi-year geologic field study focused on a corridor centered along the Alaska Highway between Delta Junction and the Canada border. The purpose of this project is to provide geologic information relevant to a proposed Alaska-Canada natural gas pipeline and other future development in the corridor. The scope of this project includes identification of active faults and characterization of seismic hazards. During the 2008 field season the active fault studies were focused on the central part of the corridor between Dot Lake and Tetlin Junction. Field studies included helicopter and fixed-wing air reconnaissance augmented by interpretation...
Active and potentially active faults in or near the Alaska Highway corridor, Delta Junction to Dot Lake, Alaska
During the 2006 and 2007 field seasons, geologic features indicative of possible youthful surface faulting in or near the Alaska Highway corridor between Delta Junction and Dot Lake were identified by helicopter and fixed-wing air reconnaissance, augmented by interpretation of stereo air photos, remotely sensed images, and aeromagnetic and electromagnetic (EM) datanction to the eastern boundary of the Mt. Hayes Quadrangle. The largest of these faults is the previously unrecognized Dot "T" Johnson fault, a major west-trending, south-dipping thrust fault bordering the northern margin of the Alaska Range along the south side of the Tanana River valley. Two other faults identified as active in this study, the Canteen...
