    Romanzof Mountains, For some decades I have been exploring an east-west route through the Brooks Range along the Continental Divide, which begins at the Kongakut Bend. We pursued a part of this route in mid summer. The beautiful upper, north fork of the Kongakut has a canyon that tunnels through cliff walls that kiss at places. This trip backward in time capsulizes in a general way the geologic development of the area that is now northern Alaska. The Cretaceous through Recent history is predominantly one of erosion of the ancient Brooks Range and filling of the Colville Geosyncline under processes like those in Operation today.

A summary chapter provides an overview and presents a possible model for Alaska's Phanerozoic evolution. The Geology of Alaska is the largest publication produced in the Decade of North American Geology program, a fitting tribute to this magnificent area.

Its peaks average 3, to 4, feet ( to 1, metres) in the west and about 5, to 6, feet (1, to 1, metres) in the centre and east. The highest points, reaching between about 8, and 9, feet (2, and 2, metres) are found near the Canadian border. Abstract. The geology of Alaska bordering the Arctic Ocean can be visualized as a succession of depositional episodes separated by distinct tectonic or orogenic events that leave identifiable patterns in the geologic framework of the northern third of the state (Fig.

The Brooks Range (Athabaskan Gwazhał) is a mountain range in far northern North America stretching some miles (1, km) from west to east across northern Alaska into Canada 's Yukon Territory.

Reaching a peak elevation of 8, feet (2, m) on Mount Isto, the range is believed to be approximately million years nates: 69°16′39″N °54′40″W / °N.

In this paper, we focus on the uplift history of the British Mountains (Fig. 1), the eastern continuation of the northeastern Brooks Range in Yukon which occupies a position within the North. This book is at present the most up-to-date account of our western geologic heritage that I've found.

To get the overall development of the present western (other than the Colorado Plateau) part of the continent in one readable book, many of the details are missing. This book is more like a summary of what humans now know/5(68).

The brooks range stretches miles from west to east across northern Alaska into Canada. While mostly uninhabited and not accessible by road, the range is transected by the Dalton Highway and Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline, both of which pass through Alaska.

The most useful sources for information on the mineral deposits of the Brooks Range are the comprehensive summaries of the governmental literature by Cobb (a-l,a-b, ).
