The Alaska Highway through Southwestern Yukon is located in the discontinuous permafrost zone with many areas of the highway corridor associated with degrading permafrost. Given the strategic value of the corridor, it is critical to have a clear understanding of permafrost characteristics and...
Exploring the Past, Present, and Future of Predator-Prey Interactions Between Crabs and Their Gastropod PreyDownload
Interactions between predators and prey play an important role in structuring their communities and shaping evolution. However, human-induced climate change has the potential to influence both predators and prey and disrupt their interactions. The fossil record provides an enormous resource to...
The first fossil echinoids are recorded from the Cayman Islands. A regular echinoid, Arbacia? sp., the spatangoids Brissus sp. cf. B. oblongus Wright and Schizaster sp. cf. S. americanus (Clark), and the clypeasteroid Clypeaster sp. are from the Middle Miocene Cayman Formation. Test fragments of...
In this dissertation, tephrostratigraphy is used as the central method to address issues of chronology in the late Quaternary sedimentary record of eastern Beringia (non-glaciated Yukon and Alaska) at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. The Palisades, central Alaska, preserves...
The mapping and dating of surficial glacial landforms and sediments across southern Banks Island document glaciation by the northwest Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) during the last glacial maximum. Geomorphic landforms confirm the operation of an ice stream at least 1000 m thick in Amundsen Gulf that...
The Ironshore Formation, a Pleistocene limestone succession found on Grand Cayman, is formed of six unconformity-bounded units (A to F) that developed in response to transgressive-regressive cycles. Highstands led to deposition whereas lowstands led to diagenetic change in the earlier deposited...
