Chronostratigraphy of glaciations and permafrost episodes in the Cordillera of western North America

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Glaciations in the Cordillera of western North America began during the Late Miocene in the St Elias Range and coastal ranges near Anchorage, Alaska. Radiometric dating of the tephra and lava flows intercalated in the succession of older tills, loesses and outwash deposits permits the reconstruction of the probable early glacial sequence along the Cordillera. No one site shows the complete sequence, but the available data suggest synchroneity of the major glacial events throughout thre region. Thi article will outline this apparent glacial sequence and then discuss the available evidence for the presence of permafrost
