  • Description:
    Alaska’s coasts are remote and logistically inaccessible to most residents and visitors, but are a national treasure in terms of the diverse natural history and spectacular scenery. The Alaska ShoreZone program is developing an inventory of biological and geological habitats of Alaska’s coast, and in the process has developed an archive of high resolution digital imagery. Coastal Impressions: A Photographic Journey along Alaska’s Gulf Coast is intended to share some of the collected imagery so that all can marvel and learn about the natural wonders in our stunningly beautiful coastal backyard. This selection of images represents a range of ecology, geology, geomorphology, and natural forces that create the mosaic of habitats along Alaska’s gulf coast. The images capture the shore during some of the lowest tides of the year, providing a visual portal to the benthos and the unique zonation and assortment of intertidal and shallow subtidal biota.
