Abstract : The report presents a study of lateral erosion rates at proposed river crossing sites of the Alaska pipeline by the comparison of aerial photographs. Examination of river crossings between the Yukon River and Prudhoe Bay was done by helicopter. Most of the crossing sites described were examined in the field, in too brief a time to permit quantitative measurements, but long enough to be of much assistance in interpretation of the aerial photographs.
