Map of Alaska

Alaska, the largest state in the United States, is located in the northwestern portion of the North American continent[1]. It spans over 663,268 square miles and is bordered only by Canada on the east[2]. The state boasts a diverse geography that includes mountains, glaciers, forests, tundra, and coastline[3]. The Aleutian Islands are also a part of Alaska, stretching out into the Pacific Ocean. The piece of land with the most westerly longitude is Amatignak Island at 179 06' 31" west, just shy of the 180th meridian[4]. Alaska's location and geography contribute to its unique climate and population demographics.

Alaska's climate is largely influenced by its high latitude and the extratropical storm track[5]. The state is divided into seven climate divisions, including the North Slope, West Coast, Central Interior, Northeast Interior, Southeast Interior, Cook Inlet, and Bristol Bay[6]. The background map not only shows the climate zones but also shaded relief of weather-influencing terrain, rivers, lakes, ocean depths, sea surface temperatures, and more[7]. Summer daytime temperatures range from 55 - 70 F[8]. The climate of Alaska can vary widely by region and season, making it a unique place to live and visit.

Some of the most famous glaciers in Alaska include Matanuska Glacier, Knik Glacier, and Exit Glacier[19]. Modern glaciers in Alaska are also shown on the bedrock geologic map of Alaska[21]. With their stunning beauty and unique ecosystem, glaciers are a popular destination for tourists and locals alike.
