It was a particularly important period for the geology of western atholmoraleephotography.com: Steven Earle.

    This includes three 'modern' events from the 20th century, ten with limited data availability but potentially broad distributions, and six that are widely reported in interior Alaska and Yukon. Each tephra is assessed in terms of chronology, geochemistry and distribution, with new Bayesian age estimates and geochemical data when possible. Was all of Alaska covered by glaciers during the Pleistocene Ice Age? 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. This chapter is the tenth in a series of 11 book-length.

David Carter, Thomas D. Hamilton, and John P. Galloway. In geology, a proglacial lake is a lake formed either by the damming action of a moraine during the retreat of a melting glacier, a glacial ice dam, or by meltwater trapped against an ice sheet due to isostatic depression of the crust around the ice.

At the end of the last ice age about 10, years ago, large proglacial lakes were a widespread feature in the northern hemisphere. Yukon interior, Eastern Beringia 1. Bonnet Plume Basin. Arctic 34(4) distribution and source of Late Cenozoic tephra beds in the Klondike District, Yukon.
