Topographic Development History of the Alaska RangeDavis, Kailyn (2013)he overall goal of this project is to use variations in sediment source through time as a proxy for deciphering the uplift history of the Alaska Range (Fig. 1). In particular, we plan to track variations in sediment provenance through time for the Oligocene to present Tanana Basin. The main possible sediment source regions are north of the Alaska Range, south of the Alaska Range, and from the Alaska Range itself (Fig. 2). Furthermore, we will use the sediment source interpretation to test the hypothesis that the Nenana River changed direction during the Miocene (23 Ma to 5.3 Ma).
