    The Gulf of Alaska, an arm of the Pacific Ocean, extends along the southeastern coastline of Alaska from the Alaska Peninsula to the Alexander Archipelago. Because of strong surface currents and the much colder arctic air that continually sweeps across its waters, the Gulf of Alaska is the recognized genesis of the heavy rain and snow storms. The American Association of Petroleum Geologists is an international organization with o members in plus countries. The purposes of this Association are to advance the science of geology.

    ABSTRACT Glaciation has been an active sediment-producing process in the northern Gulf of Alaska area since the Miocene. No consensus exists for the date of the onset of glaciation, but the range of published ages is from to 30 m.y. B.P. Areally, the influence of glaciation has included the entire Gulf of Alaska continental shelf and much of the seafloor to the by: Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) College Road, Fairbanks, AK Phone: ()

Cook Inlet is a complex collisional forearc basin located along the north Pacific margin in south-central Alaska (Figure 1).The basin extends from the east end of Matanuska Valley in the northeast to Shelikof Strait in the southwest (Figures 1, 2a).

How We Study Seamount Geology. The research ship Atlantis carries the Alvin submersible, which we will use for our geological sampling program. Very little is known about the shape of the Gulf of Alaska seamounts, and we need to find good rock outcrops to sample, so our first step is to create a map of a seamount so we will know where to go.

This collection of twenty-one papers continues the annual series of U.S. Geological Survey reports on the geology of Alaska.

These contributions, which include full-length Articles and shorter Geologic Notes, are grouped under two broad headings: Mineral Resource Studies (ten papers) and Geologic Framework Studies (eleven papers). Reports on mineral resources discuss exploration geochemistry.

Three seismic reflectors are present throughout the lower Cook Inlet basin and can be correlated with onshore geologic features. The reflections come from unconformities at the base of the Tertiary sequence, at the base of Upper Cretaceous rocks, and near the base of Upper Jurassic strata.
