This is an archeological investigation engaging experts in the fields of archaeology, botany, and ethnohistory in a multidisciplinary study of upland cairns (artificial arrangements of stacked rocks or mounds of stones) in southeastern Alaska.

Southeast Alaska was covered in hundreds of feet of glacial years ago, except for a few isolated pockets called "refugia." Admiralty, Baranof and Chichagof islands. The Bureau of Mines Alaska field Operations Center conducted a 4-yr () mineral assessment of the Juneau Mining District in southeast Alaska as part of its ongoing statewide mining district evaluation program.

Following an extensive literature search, the Bureau investigated mines, prospects, and mineral occurrences in the area. The Cordilleran Ice Sheet covered most of southeastern Alaska during the Last Glacial Interval (LGI: Marine Isotope Stage 2).

Ice began to recede from western Alexander Archipelago ∼17, ± yr BP. In this study, pollen analysis and radiocarbon dating of three sediment cores were used to reconstruct, for the first time, the postglacial development of Cited by: 1.
