Oblique aerial photograph of Mount Griggs stratovolcano. Most of the 7,650 ft-high edifice consists late Pleistocene and Holocene lava flows and agglutinate. Introduction

Oblique aerial photograph of Mount Griggs stratovolcano. Most of the 7,650 ft-high edifice consists late Pleistocene and Holocene lava flows and agglutinate. Knife Creek tributary streams bounding volcano are the Griggs Fork (right) and the Juhle Fork (left). Beyond the Juhle Fork is Mount Juhle, which consists largely of Jurassic marine sedimentary strata of the Naknek Formation, intruded by a Tertiary porphyritic granitoid pluton. Broken Mountain (lower left), Knife Creek valley (part of the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes), and glacier (lower right) are covered by pyroclastic-flow and fall deposits from 1912 eruption of Novarupta (out of view to left). View is northward across upper Knife Creek. Photo by USGS.

The collection of papers that follows continue the series of U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) investigative reports in Alaska under the broad umbrella of the geologic sciences. The series presents new and sometimes preliminary findings that are of interest to earth scientists in academia, government, and industry; to land and resource managers; and to the general public. Reports presented in Geologic Studies in Alaska cover a broad spectrum of topics from various parts of the State (fig. 1), serving to emphasize the diversity of USGS efforts to meet the Nation's needs for earth-science information in Alaska.
