No--most of interior Alaska, south of the Brooks Range and north of the Alaska Range, was a non-glaciated grassland refuge habitat for a number of plant and animal species during the maximum Pleistocene glaciation.

Existing age estimates of American mastodon fossils indicate that these extinct relatives of elephants lived in the Arctic and Subarctic when the area was covered by ice caps -- a chronology that. Cores from Northwind Ridge, a high-standing continental fragment in the Chukchi borderland of the oceanic Amerasia basin, Arctic Ocean, contain representatives of every Phanerozoic system except the Silurian and Devonian systems.

Cambrian and Ordovician shallow-water marine carbonates in Northwind Ridge are similar to basement rocks beneath the Sverdrup basin of. A m-thick section of marine and nonmarine sediments of the Gubik Formation of northern Alaska, exposed in bluffs near Ocean Point on the Colville River, has been studied by means of pollen analysis.

Pollen from the marine sediments, of probable late Pliocene age, records a boreal forest of spruce and birch with minor amounts of alder in the adjacent terrestrial vegetation. Stratigraphy and radiocarbon ages for the Mt.

However, a conclusive interpretation could not be made from the Arctic Ocean expedition seismoacoustic records. The Cape Deceit fauna—Early pleistocene mammalian assemblage from the Alaskan arctic We postulate the existence in northeastern Eurasia and Alaska of a Pleistocene-Recent “Beringian” mammalian realm which has at times contributed to the fauna of more southern regions of the Palaerctic and Nearctic.

The causes of this extinction—the role of humans versus that of climate—have been the focus of.

A Pleistocene Sand Sea on the Alaskan Arctic Coastal Plain Abstract. A ridge and thermokarst-basin landscape that is strikingly portrayed in Landsat winter imagery consists of large Pleistocene dunes that have been modified by younger eolian activity and thermokarst processes.

This is the most extensive area. A peat deposit on Ellesmere Island1, Nunavut, Canada, allows a unique glimpse of the Early Pliocene terrestrial biota north of the Arctic Circle.

The peat accumulated in a beaver pond surrounded.
