The Glacier History Lab at the University at Buffalo announce the release of the updated Alaska PaleoGlacier Atlas website. The updated website provides Alaska state-wide Pleistocene glacier extent maps and associated products via links to the Randolph Glacier Inventory, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the Polar Geospatial Center, and the U.S. Geological Survey. Links to ICE-D, a database of cosmogenic nuclide-based glacial chronologies, are also available through the website.
The Alaska PaleoGlacier Atlas began in 2004 as an effort to compile all glacial-geologic mapping data products statewide into one comprehensive and easily accessible location online. The effort resulted in an online warehouse known as the “Alaska PaleoGlacier Atlas.” In 2011, the Alaska PaleoGlacier Atlas was updated to include early Wisconsinan ice limits and a synthesis of state-wide glacial chronologic data. These two updates are now included in the Alaska PaleoGlacier Atlas website.
