Introductory Note

The purpose of this bibliography is to make available in digital form the extensive list of citations from the comprehensive book, The Geology of Alaska, which was published as one of the synthesis volumes of the Decade of North American Geology project series. The citation for the book is:

Plafker, George and Berg, H.C., 1994, eds., The Geology of Alaska: Boulder, Colorado, Geological Society of America, The Geology of North America, v. G-1, 1055 p., 13 pls.

The bibliography was compiled from citations in the 33 chapters and 13 plates that describe the geology and geophysics of each of Alaska's principal onshore and offshore regions and also cover a full spectrum of topical subjects that include physiography, lithotectonic terranes, igneous and metamorphic petrology, geochronology, geophysics, geochemistry, sedimentary basins, mineral and energy resources, glaciation, permafrost, neotectionics and tectonic evolution. With a total of 3,200 citations, this is one of the most comprehensive and up-to-date bibliographies available for publications on earth sciences in Alaska and in adjacent regions of Canada and Russia.

Preparation of this bibliography is part of the Geological Survey's effort to develop a comprehensive digital data base on the geology and geophysics of the United States as mandated in the National Geologic Mapping Act of 1992. We hope that these references will be of assistance to earth scientists concerned with Alaska research. References are in standard U.S. Geological Survey and Geological Society of America bibliographic format.

The authors would appreciate any comments on the bibliography and are especially interested in corrections to errors in the citations. Please email comments to: Judy Weathers at jweather@usgs.gov
