Abstract

The National Mapping Division and Water Resources Division of the U.S. Geological Survey have produced a digital data base of approximately 23,330 lakes on the North Slope of Alaska. The inventoried region consists of the area north of the 69th parallel and is composed of sixteen 1 degree by 3 degree quadrangles. The data base includes (1) locations of lake centers in latitude and longitude, (2) a unique number for each lake within a quadrangle, and (3) acreage for water classes (deep, shallow or turbid, and ice) within each lake and lake total. The digital data base is an easily accessible storage and retrieval system that will allow for rapid identification of a particular lake or region of lakes and its characteristics. The data base is designed to accommodate field study data such as lake depth, water quality, volume of water, ice thickness, and other pertinent information. (Author 's abstract)
