The next morning, we boarded our assigned bus, one of several taking excited travelers on a three-hour drive to the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge. A baseline environmental characterization of the embayments and fjords on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska was conducted using a sediment quality approach based on sediment chemistry, and benthic invertebrate community structure. Sediment toxicity and resident fish body burdens were also assessed at one bay near an abandoned mine site. The study area was subdivided into .

This highly active tectonic setting is the dominant influence on the nature of the depositional systems and the sediment composition along the inlet's shoreline.

The km of shoreline of Lower Cook Inlet was subdivided into erosional (45%), neutral (38%), and lower Cook Inlet (17%) by: Cook Inlet (Fisher and Magoon ) and the Sea of Okhotsk (Watson and FujitaEichelberger et al. ) occur within back-arc settings in which extensional tectonics are operative.

The Castle Mountain fault is a km-long, right-lateral fault that forms the northern boundary of the Cook Inlet basin and Matanuska Valley, Alaska.

Fault gouge and fault rock at six localities contain the clay minerals illite, smectite, chlorite, and interstratified illite/smectite. A regional classification of shoreline segments along the Alaskan Beaufort Sea Coast was developed as the basis for quantifying coastal morphology, lithology, and carbon and mineral sediment fluxes.

We delineated 48 mainland segments totaling 1, km, as well as 1, km of spits and islands. Mainland coasts were grouped into five broad classes: exposed Cited by:   Offshore tracts in Alaska's lower Cook Inlet are scheduled to be opened for exploratory petroleum drilling in the near future.

Augustine Volcano, a small island volcano located in Cook Inlet, Alaska has produced approximately 11 flank-failure debris-avalanches over the last 2, yrs (BP) that were large enough to reach the coast of the island and enter the sea. Each debris avalanche conceivably could have triggered a tsunami.

Ina tsunami generated by an eruption and flank-failure. Not only have the beaches eroded quickly during the past years, but erosion rates have increased significantly over time. The greatest changes have been observed along the tribal reservation, where USGS scientists and their collaborators reported in a article that erosion averaged nearly 2 ft per year between and (see Warrick and others.

Three seismic reflectors are present throughout the lower Cook Inlet basin and can be correlated with onshore geologic features.

There are around 10 areas within Cook Inlet that have a combined technical tidal potential of a few hundred megawatts (MW). This would be around half the average load for the entire. Water circulation in lower Cook Inlet is dominated by the Alaska Coastal Current (ACC) that flows northward along the shores of the Kenai Peninsula until it turns westward and is mixed by the combined influences of freshwater input from upper Cook Inlet, wind, topography, tidal surges, and the coriolis effect (Field and WalkerMMS ).

Mudflats or mud flats, also known as tidal flats, are coastal wetlands that form in intertidal areas where sediments have been deposited by tides or rivers.

A recent global analysis suggested they are as extensive globally as mangroves. They are found in sheltered areas such as bays, bayous, lagoons, and ts may be viewed geologically as exposed layers of bay mud. ABSTRACT Short term variability in delta form and process can be partly explained by the relative strength of hydraulic parameters such as river discharge, discharge variability, wave energy flux and tidal range.

However, the calibre or grain size is also important. The amount, mode of transport and grain size of the sediment load delivered to a delta front have a considerable .MP Worden, A.K., Schaefer, J.R., and Mulliken, K.M.,Tephra occurrence in Alaska: a map-based compilation of stratigraphic tephra data: Alaska Division of.
