Pre‐Cambrian and Paleozoic vulcanism of interior Alaska

Eos, Transactions, American Geophysical Union



The history of vulcanism in Alaska is a topic of great universal interest, but one which has had no adequate treatment. For some years the writer has been accumulating comparative data on this subject, and it is hoped that this information may some time be sufficiently amplified and coordinated to justify a general description of the sequential igneous history of Alaska. The scope of such an undertaking, however, can well be appreciated from the statement that Alaska is nearly a fifth the size of the United States, and that geologic studies have shown that igneous rocks have originated in Alaska in every geologic period, excepting perhaps the Cambrian and the Silurian. Therefore, in the present paper, it has seemed best to present only a part of this interesting record, and perhaps in subsequent papers to expand the areal and geologic limits of discussion. ©1935.
