Abstract

This paper describes the full-glacial soil and land surface of 10 localities on the northwestern Seward Peninsula. The aim is to make a paleosol-based reconstruction of what is assumed to be zonal environmental conditions on the upland surface and to test the predictions of the mammoth-steppe model for this region. No exact analogues are known; however, soils underlying dry tundra near the artic coast of northern Yakutia, Russia, and under moist, nonacidic tundra of the Alaskan North Slope have properties in common with the buried soils
