CAPPS ABSTRACT During the spring of an opportunity was offered by the United States Navy for a geologist to accompany an expedition organized to make a recon­ naissance of the western part of Alaska Peninsula and the Aleutian : S.R.

Capps. The Aleutian Ridge segment is a massive, mostly submerged cordillera that includes both the islands and the submerged pedestal from which they protrude.

The Alaska Peninsula-Kodiak Island segment is composed of the Alaska Peninsula, its adjacent islands, and their continental and insular margins. The Alaskan Peninsula is of special geological interest since it represents the continental margin of southern Alaska as well as a part of the Aleutian island arc.

The structural configuration of the Alaska Peninsula, based on recent field data, is shown in a new geologic map (,), and the regional geology of the area is presented on a new tectonic map (,).

Another absorbing section is dedicated to the famous World War II Aleutian campaign, the bombing of Dutch Harbor and the story of the Aleut evacuation to Southeast Alaska. The Aleutian Islands, from past to present, is a vibrant, powerful book about the region that takes in both the western- and easternmost points in the United States.4/5(1).
