A Field Guide to Alaska’s Southern Accretionary Complex


This is a site I am going to use for a lesson plan.   It shows the age of the lands that became a part of the Anchorage area due to the accretionary complex brought by the subduction zone.   I learned a lot of cool facts from this.

The pdf describes a field trip from the sedimentary lands of the city of anchorage, into the chugach mountains.   It has a fantastic map.
