Abstract

Point Barrow is located in the northernmost extremity of the Arctic Coastal Plain (Figure 1). The coastal plain is an undulating surface of low relief, the major relief being in the vicinity of the major northflowing rivers. The general lack of relief is largely due to the fact that the area is a recently elevated segment of the continental shelf, and thus, it has the low relief characteristics of most recently emerged coastal plains.
