2015 Section Meeting Program
Post the Meeting Flyer
The 111th annual meeting of GSA’s Cordilleran Section will be held on the University of Alaska–Anchorage campus, in Anchorage, Alaska’s largest and most diverse city. Situated at the base of the Chugach Mountains, Anchorage is built on glacial deposits associated with the last major ice age. The waters of Cook Inlet, a major marine embayment, surround the city on its north, west and south sides. Turnagin Arm to the south experiences the second highest tides in North America. To the west of Anchorage, across Cook Inlet, are the Tordrillo Mountains and Mount Spurr Volcano, the closest active volcano to Anchorage. To the north are the high peaks of the Alaska Range, including Mount McKinley, the highest mountain in North America. Because of its location, Anchorage is a key international air hub in the North Pacific region as well as one of the primary gateways to the Alaskan wilderness.
