    The geology of Alaska includes Precambrian igneous and metamorphic rocks formed in offshore terranes and added to the western margin of North America from the Paleozoic through modern times. The region was submerged for much of the Paleozoic and Mesozoic and formed extensive oil and gas reserves due to tectonic activity in the Arctic Ocean. Alaska was largely ice free during the . Alaska is the northernmost and westernmost state in the United States and has the most easterly longitude in the United States because the Aleutian Islands extend into the Eastern Hemisphere. Alaska is the only non-contiguous U.S. state on continental North America; about miles ( km) of British Columbia (Canada) separates Alaska from Washington. @article{osti_, title = {Geology of Republic graben and implications for Eocene sedimentation in north-central portion of the Columbia basin}, author = {Gaylord, D R and Thiessen, R L and Mohl, G B}, abstractNote = {A sequence of potential hydrocarbon-producing volcaniclastic and siliciclastic Cenozoic sedimentary rocks is preserved in the Republic graben, the largest of a series of en.
