Thumbnail of and link to report PDF (2.3 MB)Summary

The map area, which comprises part of the Noatak National Preserve, includes approximately the southern two-thirds of the Misheguk Mountain quadrangle and the northern one-third of the Baird Mountains quadrangle. It is centered on a belt of west-trending lowlands along the Noatak River which separates the De Long Mountains to the north from the Baird Mountains to the south (Burch, 1990, p. 196-201). The map area extends between the drainage divides which bound the Noatak drainage system to the north and south, separating that network from streams that flow north into the Arctic Ocean and south into the Kobuk River. An additional small segment in the southwest corner of the map area covers the upper drainage basin of Eli River, which flows west and then south to intersect the Noatak River about 50 km upvalley from Kotzebue Sound.
