Alaska Arctic Landscape Map

The landscape physiography map displays regions of plains, hills, mountains, glaciers and lakes. Generally, plains are flat or gently rolling landscapes less than 200 m above sea level. Hills are more dissected than plains (more surface roughness) and are 200-500 m in elevation. Mountains have greater surface roughness and are above 500 m in elevation. The Alaska Arctic Tundra Vegetation Map is a more detailed map of the Alaska portion of the Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map. The Alaska Arctic Tundra Vegetation Map is a more detailed map of the Alaska portion of the Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map. The landscape mapping is the same as the Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map.
